Flip-Pal™ Mobile Scanner Blog Hop Week #2 - Despite a few bug bites - Artwork by Linda Peterson

Welcome to week #2!  Wasn't last weeks hop amazingly talented???  Breath-taking and inspiring artwork!!

I've used my Flip-Pal(R) Mobile Scanner soooooo much, I actually wore down the batteries...seriously....but..thank goodness before I did...I got some great great scans in!

I'm moving to my studio to a new location, which also means going thru some of the old boxes and pitching stuff out.   I found one of my favorite dresses that my daughter, Mariah used to wear.   It's a little yellow and pink floral dress (um...didnt get a picture of the dress) with yellow gingham accents and trimmed in sage green.  She was about 2 or 3 when she wore this dress....and it was a very difficult time in her life.  She was going thru chemotherapy to treat a brain tumor.  I bought her this dress after a surgery and she just shined..she looked like a little blossoming flower!  Maybe that's why I kept the dress....(Im a pack-rat you know...)

So I grabbed my scanner and scanned different elements of the dress....the little pink and yellow flowers, the gingham trim....and loaded it into photoshop, where I printed it out on paper.

Last Saturday, I got together with my "Scrappin' Sisters" for our monthly Scrapbooking crop.  This was the perfect opportunity to use the new paper I made for one of my collage paintings.....

First I started with the color pallette based on the colors of the dress.....


the paper created from the scanned fabric...

 
and of course, the words.......



And....the reveal....full of bling...like her colorful life.......oh...and one more thing....


it's true.....a flower NEVER fails to bloom.....despite a few bug bites....along the way....

Mariah today....a beautiful young 19 years old!


Go grab your favorite drink....sit back, relax and hop along to the other designers pages.....
