Mixed Media Collage: "Hope"

Last weekend I decided to do a mixed media canvas for my sister-in-law, who is fighting cancer and undergoing chemotherapy. Though she has had a pretty positive outlook this past year, I wanted to make her something that she could look at any time that she didn't feel well. I also gave her a plate holder to sit it on so that she could look at it whenever she needed to.

Here is the whole piece. 
Parden the photos,
but the sunlight was not great when
I took them...

Her favorite color is red, 
so I wanted to work some into this piece...

The piece of music is from a sweet little children's
book from the 1800's that I recently purchased,
and of course, resisting lace is so difficult
for me...

I backed this one with a piece of coordinating
scrapbook paper
and put one of my favorite quotes on the back.
I took this photo at a slant,
but it was actually straight on the canvas...

It's so much more rewarding creating a piece for someone else
than it is creating it just for the sake of creating something.

I hope that you have a day filled with hope!
Many thanks for stopping by.
