Love Potion #9

Posted on

Well, my title is actually about Compendium of Curiosities 2, Challenge 9.  Check out the details and great art being shared over at StudioL3.  The technique can be found on page 35 of  Tim Holtz: A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 2.  This week’s challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.

My title reference to love potion #9 refers to my relationship with my dad.  We were tight buddies nearly all my life and although he passed away years ago and the last couple years of his life were rocky, I have times when I’d give anything to visit with him again.  I was looking through old photos and came across this one of my dad and me at an east coast beach in 1954.

Here’s my finished piece.  I kept it fairly simple, some Antique Linen Distress Stickles for sand and three little beach-themed buttons.  I did add it to a large bead chain so I have a new necklace to wear.

I’m submitting my project to Simon Says Stamp and Show Anything Goes Challenge, also.

I hope you’re having a great day.  Thanks for stopping by and I’m always thrilled with your comments.

P.S. Happy Father’s Day, Daddy from your Sweet Petunia.  (Got me ice cream every time! LOL)
