Thank you so much for those of you who has tried this technique! I'm sure this will give you an idea as to how I get my inspiration and design my projects. I've enjoyed reading all the answers and here's my interpretation of it.
"Hold My Hand" layout:
The picture is actually my daughter, Chloe, holding onto my husband's hand. The first inspiration I have is to create a layout that speaks bonding, love and guidance. The interpretation for the colours is that I purposely left some areas white and it seems that it is slowly covered with colours. This shows the blossoming of knowledge and experience. The owl would represent a journey with the guidance of a wise one. Of course, the swirls would read as a winding and complicated journey. The stitching on the title resembles the bond. And lastly, the Asian lady rub-on represents the Asian culture that we practice in our family.
I do promised to choose a winner and send her a little gift. Therefore, the winner for my "Read Using Your Heart" challenge is....
Thanks for the inspiration Irene. Love your work and I always wonder how you can create such beautiful creations. I guess that's where I'm lacking - reading from the heart.
The moment I look at the photo, I feel a sense of belonging, protection and comfort. The child will not be lost because of the guiding hand of the adult. There is so much security here and the flowers/vines surrounding the photos portray as much calmness and security required by a child. The owl, as always represents wisdom and a child will always look up to an adult as the wisest person in the whole world.
A very colourful and meaningful representation and hopefully I shall learn to create more layouts in this manner. Thank you.
Congratulations Iszalil! Email me your address and I'll send your little gift to you.
