A flourish or two. Before/after

I decided a few nights ago to go throw myself into the studio and see what mess I could create. Let me just say there is a huge mess in there right now. Looks like hell unleashed in there to be frank. Not funny but really one big MESS!
I did manage to make a little productive mess though. I worked on the cover for my friends mini book.
This is the first mini book that I have done without a blank premade to start with. I have only done one other mini in my life. So all trial and error. I just hope she likes it. I am really loving it so far. Here is the before shot.


Here is it after


So tell me what you think? I painted the glimmer mist on the letter. That way I would have more control of where it went. I really liked this technique. I will be using it again.

On to my day. Mom has decided to get a second opinion. I am happy she is doing this. This means she is considering the surgery. I spent the night last night so we could go see the new Doctor. Unfortunately Mom wrote the directions down wrong and we ended up lost. Came home and had missed the appointment and had to reschedule. I think from now on I will be handling the directions and writing the phone numbers down. Mom is a little stressed( understandable) and not thinking clearly. So I am trying to help as much as I can.

I hope you all have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by:)
