The forgotten memories took me back home to Kansas where my dad farmed and our main crop was wheat and I could see it in the sunset the second I saw the poster. So first on the card was the scene then it reminded me of dad and that meant I needed our favorite the sunflower!
We always had a dog (I did get a cute face like the poster) and horses and more but I stopped with two. Then came the memories of catching butterflies and fireflies and horrid memory of the spiders my brothers would catch in a jar…yellow and black and not going on my card but I do admire the architecture of their webs so I tucked it in because the poster featured them.
The rose was for the many wild ones I’d pick for mom and I can still hear my brother saying, “it’ll die before we get back to the house so why do you pick it”…cause I’m a girl and that’s what girls do! And the last thing is the shamrocks for the many clovers we picked hoping to find a four leaf and the little bit of Irish heritage.
The blocked collage I learned here at SCS in the Technique Challenge - week 37. I used a water brush/aqua painter and pad ink for coloring. Sponging was done around the collage and in the sunset scene. All the wording is just a variety of sentiment stamps. I did use a stamp positioner for the collage images. Large tabs are circled punched and folded in half.
