I did this on Mother's Day. It's a response to the Creative Therapy Prompt "Honor a Family Member." The idea for the structure came from an article in the March/April 2010 Cloth Paper Scissors magazine called "Graffiti paper quilts" by Catherine Nicholls. It didn't turn quite how I had envisioned it, but I think there's still potential in the idea of using a collage of pictures as a background. I think I'll keep working with it and next time not be so afraid about covering up the background images. As it is, I do like the sentiment and the tribute to my mom who has been gone for over five years and was truly an amazing woman who taught me so much.
