This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha.
Aletha was on the Aurora Wings DT and in her name Mitzi, of Aurora Wings has drawn this adorable digi, a wonderful Passion Flower Sprite. Aletha loved the colour purple and had a passion for art and life so this wee sprite couldn't be more perfect with her beautiful colours and artists palette too.
I used a photo of a Passion Flower which I edited digitally for the part of the background and then coloured over it with Pan Pastels after printing. Pan Pastels were also for the rest of the background and the texturing using a feather stencil. The feather does not show as the stencil was overly large but no matter, the feather had to be used as feathers appear when angels are near and Aletha is a beautiful angel now. Passion Flower Sprite was coloured with Promarkers and the sentiment topper was created digitally. I used gold to mount the finished image which I embossed with a sun rays embossing folder and then was mounted onto purple hand made paper made from amongst other things, torn up bits of newspaper which somehow seemed very fitting for this card.
Sleep tight Aletha and thank you sweetheart just for being you. Aletha's blog is still active if you would like to pop on over and enjoy some time browsing her amazing artwork -
