punk look, I did another first, I used a digital down load from an Etsy shop MonBonBon. I printed two of her vintage hot air balloons, distressed them and layered them.
Lastly, I added my title and scrounged around for my six embellishments.. (yeah it's was a challenge thing)
however, after finding my embellishment and after staring some time at my balloon image and another idea began to develop. I used 14 of these fabulous little lacing brads that I've had FOREVER and some waxed floss and mimicked the ropes on my balloon. I know the challenge said six but really How Much is Too Much?
Last tidbit, the pictures are my youngest daughter. Yes, I'll be the first to admit it, she's a cutie. But for those of you who don't know it, Sarah is on the Autistic Spectrum. She's a very high functioning little girl but suffers from severe anxiety disorder and loads of little symptoms all over the scale. This particular summer Sarah CHOOSE to have me photograph her after some fun in the sprinkler. She had fun posing for me and smiling and I was so tickled to get to play behind the camera. Moments like this don't happen often, and those out there with Autistic children know it's sometimes very difficult to even get their child to look AT them, let alone at a camera... so a true treasure. :D
