My boys birthday is tomorrow...
I gave him his present early, but I wanted to share it with you all!
It is a mixed media piece that was created with love and time :)
I used my old magazines to find inspiring words and phrases (Which, by the way...you would think magazines dedicated to making women feel beautiful and unique and confident in themselves would have a few words I couldn't find like: Remedy, Direction and Confidently...BUT alas, I couldn't find them...)
I also created a few phrases from Henry David Thoreau because my boy likes his Thoreau.
I used layers of Mod Podge and Tissue to create texture then I created many layers of paint to create something completely unique and fun.
Take a look!
I was pretty excited to give it to him.
I give him lots of artwork as a reminder that I love him and because I think handmade gifts are the best things to give :)
