Small Journal of the Day

Proverbs 31:28--"Her children arise and call her blessed."
What a tribute to a mother--to be called blessed.  I used a picture from an insert from Somerset Studio Magazine as the focal point on a scrapbook paper background and added lace dot trim and woven pink trim and a metal flowered button.   The bouquet is a collection of flowers I gleaned from hankies and the word, "blessed," taken from a vintage dictionary, is glued to feed sack fabric.  I added an assortment of seam bindings and ribbons to the ends on which I tied a key, a drop from an earring and a tiny plastic curtain ring.  A vintage pearl clip earring is stabilized on the ribbons with stitches sewn through the clip.
