Retro Easter

A project from a few years ago ...
Take the initial letter from each word to spell out Easter.


Each one inch squared tile is cut from a sheet of mountboard,
covered front & back, in patterned paper from K & Company
designed by Brenda Walton.


I found six beautiful faces on Blanca's blog,
which I digitally remastered
(altered the colour, tone & resized).


The edges were sanded
to add a little aged, distressed, shabby feel.


After looking deeply into their eyes,
I gave each lady a description
which I felt matched their mood.


To add a hint of colour & focal interest,
I used Cherry Blossom flowers
leftover from my La Pashe decoupaged greeting cards.


These little beauties will stay on my desk throughout
Easter
& raise a smile each time I look at them ...
