For Art Journal Journey, collage, and 99 Faces I drew a face and turned it into a collage. The drawing is based on a photo of my sister Cynthia, who died 15 years ago. The photo was taken back in the 1960s after the birth of her youngest son Michael. She lived most of her life in the USA, but was visiting England with her children at that time. Today would have been her 78th birthday. I made a quick drawing with pastel chalks, cut it out, and collaged it onto a background stamped directly with ink-pads in shades of brown and blue. I added some washi tapes and a sentiment. The drawing does not do justice to how pretty she was, you can see the original photo in the second hybrid collage.
The words here are from Christina Rosetti's poem 'remember'.

The photos show the sky early this morning, as dawn was breaking. I love the colour changes in the sky between dawn and sunrise:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
