Mom the Super Woman

Happy Friday everyone. I hope if any of you are in  hurricane Florence's path you are safe, that is if you have power to even read blogs. 
I have one more page this week for Yvonne's Fantasy challenge over at Art Journal Journey
It's a fantasy view of Mom, the woman who is a warrior and super hero in the mind of every kid.
But Mom isn't  a completely tough woman, so I added a little lace trim around the edges of the page because we know Mom has a soft loving side too.
And if you are a cat or dog  or other animal mom, I think our furry children look at us the same way.
I started this page by coloring the background with some watercolor crayons. Then I used silver paint and a stencil to make the stars, and I also added some red painted line.  Once dried, I outlined the stars and added this woman who was cut out of the pattern book I bought back in the summer.
That's all for me. Have a super weekend and thanks for stopping by my blog.

Great idea! Mom the super woman! I like how you gave her a little touch of soft loving with this lace trim around the edges of the page!

Love this! But I'd skip the lace. No need to let the family know Mom has a soft side. =^,.^= Have a good weekend.

Wow Erika I love this page. Mom's everywhere are sure to be super heros in the eyes of their children. The background bright colours make this a really happy
page and draw the eye to the wonderful strong image you used.
Thank you for another awesome page for my theme at AJJ this month.

You are definitely getting a LOT of good out of that wonderful pattern book you bought. It was a very lucky find and will come in handy in the future, too, I'm sure. She turned into a superhero, that's for sure. I love the background, the stars, and how you manipulated the watercolor crayons. This is a super and incredible journal page, and I'm thrilled you share it with us at Art Journal Journey. Sorry to be so late, AGAIN. I can't seem to catch up.

Oh Erika, your fantasy pages always bring a smile to my face! Love your super mum, a great idea and so very true, though by the time our kids are teenager, they usually have a the different view. Love the background you created, and I do like that touch of lace...

Thanks for your comment regarding my AT Coins, I'd be very happy to swap with you. Just email me when you have a minute and we can exchange addresses etc.

Happy weekend!!
