The together was the inspiration for the piece - those little ones will always be tied together.  I'm glad you like it a-roze.

That, and I totally ripped off the book cover thing from Phizzy.

The texture on the photo comes from gesso, sandpaper, and spray web.  I love spray web.

The spray web is pretty fantastic. Does it come in those tiny little spray cans by Krylon?

Yes, I use the krylon brand, in the small size.  It's tricky to use because it's very hard to direct the spray.  I ruined the piece I'm working on for Racky with it.  I've found the best way to use it is to mask areas where I don't want it to cover with a torn piece of paper (torn to avoid a straight edge).  But unfortunately, I sometimes forget to do that.

I received from kat today!

Here's my grandmother, lovingly displayed on an old book cover, with the word "Fragile" under her. It's so sweet! Thanks so much, kat; it was worth the wait.  Smiley

After I posted, I went back through and looked at everyone's work again. This was such a great swap.

It really is.  I'm sorry for holding it up so long.  I'm glad your piece arrived Racky!

Its wonderful! I love how you used the book covers. I'm totally going to have to steal that idea for future projects.

Thanks AR.  I totally stole the bookcover idea from Phizzy, so we can rip her off together.  Wink
