Old Collage using little girls image

Like I mentioned in my previous post-I LOVE the picture of these little girls. I gave this as a gift to Gillian's "teacher" who came out every week to work with her from the time she got out of the NICU till she was 2 1/2 years old. She LOVED my art and always commented on it when she came each week (It always sat on the piano). So as a gift to her when I knew that Gillian would be "graduated " from that particular program and Janelle would no longer come out to see us every week, I did a piece of art for her. Her favorite color is pink so I wanted to incorporate that into this. To date, this is one of the most favorite pieces I have done. This was done in 2005.

(Image transferred to Canvas, molding paste applied for texture, hand dyed ribbon, buttons, vintage text)

The text reads:
"The only way t0o have a friend is to be one. Ralph Waldo Emerson"

Alot of heart went into this-Janelle became a very special person in our lives, and we are still in contact today.
