Tribute to My Mother

For one of my art projects, I started with a red and white background made from using a gelli plate. There was a slightly elongated light white area which, somehow, reminded me of a picture of my mother taken shortly after I was born. I added the cut out picture of her standing next to the radio, a piece of furniture everyone had in their homes at the time (pre TV) and then added some stenciled flowers in white gesso. I later added this SoulCollage piece to my moleskin art journal for Document Life Project.   I also used this as a large  insert covering a few pockets for Project Life.  Of course, journaling about my memories of her and what I learned from her and have carried within to this day are part of both the Document Life Art Journal and Project Life album.
