Today I am sharing how I solved Case 195 over at Color Stories Inspiration. It's an absolute GLORIOUS colour palette - it was love at first sight for me!
Here is the piece I worked on:
Scheme : all there
Evidence : stripes, hearts, flowers, clouds, fabric and ink splats
Testimony : IW's childhood and friendship
Quite often, as of late especially, I have thought how much easier life is as a child; and how very much, if only for a day, I could live as a child does - free of any adult responsibility.
However, I realise that actually, childhood is NOT easy. Children still have so much to learn; so many lessons that bring heartbreak.
One of your friendships built over last year is crumbling now that you have both moved to a new school together and it breaks my heart when you tell me that your little friend doesn't want to play with you anymore. It's very, very hard for mommy to see you go through this; but it's actually a rite of passage. A normal thing that happens. Not a nice lesson for you to learn.
I take great, great comfort in the fact that you are such a social little butterfly and that you do tend to make friends so easily. That is the upside of this.
The downside? Your little heart is so tiny and you are very sensitive, so it's so hard for you to understand that your best friend doesn't always want to play with you.
I'm sorry my baby girl. But right now you are the very best at making new friends - you are SO good at it and I want you to embrace that my sweetheart.
And here are some close up shots.
