Inside the Cover

Standard

Front_cover_inside_web_2 Can you believe that these gorgeous little cherub faces are none other than the mother’s of the famous Sally (are you home in your own bed yet Sweet???) & my special art pal Lynne (Sally’s cousin).  Amazingly these sisters two have birthdays on the same day & so on Sally’s last evening with us, she & Lynne worked on making birthday cards using a gel transfer method & this photograph of their mothers.  I made a copy of the photo for myself when I was preparing theirs & couldn’t resist using it on the inside of the front cover of my new little Deco ‘Company for Tea’  The tear away of text is from a delightful book of Abby’s with a title something like ‘Etiquitte for Everyday situations’ from about 1900.  I am not sure whether you can make it out, but it really is quite funny to read.  The background imagery is a combination of more of the gorgeous Basic Grey Periphery and cut outs from a magazine of the Wedgewood ‘Sarah’s Garden’ (which I adore) – AND I don’t even drink TEA!!!  I have purposely created a soft washy look with layers of transluscent gesso & a little Moon Glow on the girls dresses.  It has a soft dreamy feel about it which looks quite soft in real life.
