I am hoping this is the right location for this. In February a friend's mom went through a horrible medical ordeal. We almost lost her and there was a couple comas... she is now on a very slow journey of recovery and having to relearn EVERYTHING! My friend is traveling to visit her next week and asked all of her crafty friends if they would make a 8x10" picture of encouragement and hope for her. She will compile all the pages in an art journal for her mother.

It took me a couple days to fully complete my page and here is the completed project:


Everything was sewn on to the ivory cardstock backing. This will make is easier to glue my page into the journal.


I used a lighter and distress inks on the burlap and scraps of fabric and freezer paper stencils for the branch and the word, "Hope". I found a scrap of printer fabric for the lettering of the quote. And bird feathers for the birds tail feathers.

I am hoping to finish a memory style quilt before she leaves and one more journal page..... here's hoping! I hope you enjoyed!

That is a beautiful journal page, Rebecca! What a wonderful gift for your friend's mom. I love the quote, and the pieced background, and the bird...everything!

Wow thanks everyone! We've been praying and sending good wishes her way for many months now! I am in the process of making a lap quilt for her as well... I have it pieced and basted and one line of quilting done... I don't know how I am going to finish it by tomorrow afternoon when I drop the page off, but NOTHING is IMPOSSIBLE! Might just be an all nighter of quilting! At least the hubby is off tomorrow so I can sleep in!
