Sleeping babies and little girls with flowers in their hair
I swear this won't turn into the Allie Marie blog, but Tiff just sent me some pictures and this one just touched my heart. Is there nothing more peaceful than a sleeping baby? When you see a baby feeling so safe and secure that they're sleeping so deeply and soundly, it give you hope that good things can still come from the world. All is not lost.
Miss Tilda with the pretty flower band in her hair reminds me of the sweetness and carefree nature that most little girls have. Somewhere along the way most of us lose that gentle, everything-will-be-just-fine nature that we're all born with. This Tilda takes me back to the times when I was a little girl and I'd make hair rings out of dandelions. That bright yellow pollen would stain your finger tips and the smell would stay with you even after all the scrubbing of dial soap. If I breath in really deep, that fragrance comes right back.
I colored Tilda with my Prismacolor pencils and OMS and used my spica clear glitter pen on her flowers in her hair and around her shoe straps. I used Basic Grey background paper on her and some baubles sent from Monika in some blog candy I won. I used my opaque gel pen on her cheeks and the flower brads are from making memories. I hope you enjoy her.
Now breath in deep. It's summer time and if you think hard enough, you may be able to smell the sweet, sticky yellow pollen.
