IDCB - A Day for Daisies

At the 
Inspiration Destination Challenge Blog
is always Anything Goes!
This week we're being sponsored by the beautiful images of
A Day for Daisies 
The image I chose to use is
When I saw this image at 
I knew right away that I wanted to use it.  It reminded me of a picture that I have of my sister sleeping, as a toddler sound asleep against my mother's chest.  It brought back fond memories.

I used a 4x4 canvas that I prepped with gesso 
and then acrylic paint, Turquoise.
I cut a few pieces of screen and painted them white.  The image was colored with my Copic Pens.
E0000, E00, E05, R00, R05, R20, R24, R29, R43, R83, RV93, Y0000, Y00, Y02, Y08, V000.
I traced the outline of the image onto a piece of vellum paper, this way its used as a mask whilst I color the background with Distress Ink, Spiced Marmalade.
I used the spritz & flick technique, dried it with the heat gun.  Then I used Tim Holtz's distressor tool and used it around the edges.  I wanted to create tears where I can use as a peekaboo by adding the white colored screen pieces.  
I topped it off with a burgundy colored heart in memory of my mom who passed on 20 yrs ago to breast cancer.  In most of my artwork I try to use the burgundy color in her memory.  
It's been 20 yrs that I've learned to live with my number one enemy, 
It all began after her death.
Thank you all for sharing your time here with me.
