for joy . . .

A card and bookmark for an art acquaintance who lost her 23 year old grandson in an auto accident. I really did not know what to do after I received this news, especially since I do not know Joy very well. I finally decided that anything thoughtful that I could come up with would probably be helpful to her, and that spurred me on. The image is from ARTchix Studio, the Snowflake Kisses sheet. I used the collage image directly on the bookmark, and made a copy on translucent vellum for the card. I rubber stamped various phrases & images using a midnight blue VersaCraft ink pad, which I heat set. Then I used a blue watercolor crayon and a sparkly silver pen. I am really at a loss here, but wrote joy a note and told her my thoughts were with her. * with love, lenna young andrews - August 12, 2009 *
