Most of us usually scrap the happy times, but to me it's all about memories and this is a happy/sad one.
My mum and my daughter have always been really close. Alana visits nana almost every week and they chat about all the goings on in her life.
Unfortunately my mother has vascular dementia and her memory is rapidly declining.
This is such a sad and horrible illness. To see someone who is healthy lose their memory is a shocking thing to go through and so many people are now diagnosed with this illness.
The photo l have chosen is a recent one of the two of them and l thought it fitting for this challenge.
I have used Prima Color Bloom inks on my background - Cotton Candy and Chrome, and coloured the muslin under the frame with the cotton candy.
I have added paint, micro beads and Prills to my flowers
My chipboard leaves were painted and rubbed with metallic gold
The heart chipboard was done in the same way as the leaves using 2 paint colours - white and pink, then l added the metallic gold and micro beads
I have applied the same techniques to my title and number
I finished my layout with black and white ink splatters
My journalling is hidden and explains my mum's illness and the special bond between her and my daughter.
Thanks for looking and enjoy your day!
