Altered book cover: moving right along. I can hardly wait to finish this now. I am a bit scared about doing the last bit of antiquing because the first time came out so dark. I'll practice first and can hopefully be a bit more relaxed when I do it. This picture is of my Mom when she was expectant with me. In the original photo she's holding one of my cousins who's just a few months older than I, a godchild.

Wow! Wendy, this is wonderful! What a lovely photo of your Mum, and such lovely colours surrounding her. There's a proper air of expectancy to the piece... Can't wait to see how you get on with the 'antiquing'... good luck! :)

Ohhhhhhhhhh Wendy! I love it! I am excited about this piece! what a lovely way to capture your Mom! and you! hehe If antiquing it is not your thing...maybe a paint glaze....i mix one part of gel medium (the adheasive i use) to a bit of paint and then lightly brush over the piece. Try it out on something else first though! What great work you have done! Love and hugs!

Thanks you two. I think I'll try the antiquing to see what happens, after practice, but will also try the glaze on another one. I like the top righthand corner especially. I can't remember if that part actually got antiqued or just the paint. I think the paint was "napa wine".
My Mom and I look very much alike. When I first showed the piece to her she thought it was me.
The resmblance is truly

Wendy I really like your color choices here. They all work well together. Your Mom is pretty.
