MMM - Stars

This weeks theme over at MMM is stars... ok so I'm a little early as this theme doesn't start officially until tomorrow (8th Sept), but I'm working all day tomorrow and I'm so excited about this painting, I just had to get it out 'there' NOW!! LOL I'm a wee bit impatient.....



Ok so this painting is a gift for a friend and inside the "treasure memories" frame is a picture of her children. I've blocked it out (with the red card), as she is a frequent visitor to my blog and i would like this gift to be a surprise for her.

After receiving Kelly Rae's new book - "taking flight", the idea of using a frame to place a special memory or photo inside, to make the canvas a little more personal, just appealed to me on so many levels. Thank you kelly for such a fabulous book and wonderful inspiration.
