Viola - The Heart of a Mother - Mother's Day

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I created this digital collage one afternoon reflecting back on my Mom, her gentle ways, her favorite colors and the unconditional love she always gave to me and to anyone lucky enough to know her.  She passed 8 years ago and somedays I miss her more than I ever have.  She was  an artist and a naturalist and as I grow older, I see her personality shining more and more through me.  I am so grateful for her.

I've added this collage  for purchase in my Etsy shop, thinking it might make a nice gift for other Mom's who you know, will always be there for their children, no matter what.

you amaze me trudi! the way you use elements in your collages blows me away. my mind starts racing and i think about other possible ways to use them. i love that quote too and it's perfect for your collage. which comes first.....the collage or the quote? i also wanted to thank you for helping me with extractions. i've been extracting everything. i'd even extract the dog if he lay still on the scanner long enough!

Beautiful collage Trudi, and I love the thoughts you've shared about your Mother. I miss my Mom everyday, and everytime I sit down to sew a new creation, it's like she's always there beside me.

Out of all the digitals you've done, I think this stands out as my favourite to date! The sentiment, the tribute, the design, the colours - all blend to create an exquisite collage! I LOVE it!!!!
