Happy voting day! I hope you’re all making your mark today.
I know mothers day is coming up this weekend. It is not my favourite day by far. It is just a slap in the face reminder of what I don’t have. I don’t have my mother to spoil or hug or tell how much I love her. I don’t have a child to love (which is my biggest desire). So basically the day just stinks for me. That being said, I am surrounded by amazing mothers so to every single mother out there. Happy mothers day. I hope you feel how every loved you are. Ok, enough whining from me. 😉
I am posting these today because I will probably not have the courage or inclination to do it on actual Mothers day.
My moms favourite colour was yellow and she loved carnations. I don’t exactly excel in freehand but acidicice suggested I do the ‘one stroke’ technique with a brush. I don’t know if this qualifies but I used a brush 😛 I started off with 2 coats of Sinful Colors – Snow me white on my index and middle and 1 coat of Sinful Colors – Snow me white on all the rest. I then used Tip Top – Sun kissed and Tip Tip – Flamenco pink to do the sponged gradient. I used the same colours and my brush to do the abstract -ish flowers. It’s actually quite funny. My mom hated pink until I was born and was a girl and then she became a little obsessed with pink. Growing up, I hated pink because everything was pink, I swear even my walls were pink at one point. And all of a sudden, I am obsessed with pink. Crazy obsessed. It kinda feels like it has come full circle. Anyway, topcoat and I’m done.
What do you think? Does it look flowery to you? Let me know and also let me know what your plans are for mothers day.
To my mom, I love you to the moon and back and miss you more every second of every day. Always. xx
