Gift

I waited yet again till the last minute to make my entry for this forthnight's Q&L challenge where the 2 words were destiny & gift. I choose for gift and this wonderful quote: the best gift you can give is a hug, one size fits all and no one will care if you return it.
I started by looking for a cute image of hugging and found this one somewhere in my stash. I glued them on a paper towel canvas:


I initially planned to make a background which I would cut up in pieces to make a sunray. So I started, very relaxed, intuitively, no stress at all because it would be cut anyway. Well, it turned out that I liked it so much that I didn't want to cut it up and just used it as it is, just resized it to 21x21cm:


I added our little cuddly friends and used the cut off part of resizing as a tag, coincidentally it was exactly the wright size. Love it when everything just falls together. I attached the tag with this cute paperclip.


when you lift the tag the quote goes on

I will also be linking this to sundays sentiments tomorrow.

    1. I just love that background, I made sure I scanned it into the computer on a high resolution so I can use and re-use it in the future and maybe then I can cut it up :-)

  2. You certainly found the right artwork to illustrate this quote. Lovely use of the background. I've found it hard to cut into or cover up a background I like, so I understand why you kept yours intact. It is beautiful.
