This is an old family photo of my sister, Vanessa, and I. It was transferred onto silk, and I then painted around the photo adding lace, etc. It is quite large and is in a frame, with other family photos, on a wall in our home. My sister and I travelled to England together years ago. I have many fond memories of that trip, the things we saw and the people we met.
These roses were created with bread dough and glue, with several shades of paint mixed in. These were air dried and have been in a glass cabinet for years. I used roses from our garden to copy in color and form. I have decorated many items with bread dough roses over the years, and a friend even had me create a cake top for her daughter's wedding. Fun and rewarding!
