Earlier this week I was standing next to my oldest daughter and found myself really tilting my head up to look at her. Suddenly it occurred to me that she had grown a few more inches! She’s 4 inches taller than me now.
Speaking of growth, the maple has also grown, a lot. It’s still a baby but it’s looking better each year.
For the flowers, since I don’t have a variety of ephemera colors I decided to cut some digital flowers out with the Silhouette Portrait, then color them/color over them. I also don’t have a lot of stencils since I’m new to stenciling I had the Silhouette also cut the words and the triangle shapes on regular paper to use at stencils.
The triangle shapes stencil by Wilna Furstenberg, flowers by Sweet Caroline Studio, Mommyish, and Sugarplum Paperie, die cut tree branch was cut out from a digital element by Sarahh Graphics, wood veneer by Heidi Swapp, paper by Amy Tangerine, and paint is Reeves.
