Making a Memory
When I lost my very dear friend, Sue, I wanted to create a "memory words" wall piece to present to her mother.
At the memorial service, I collected a list of memory words.
PRECIOUS JOY, SWEET SOUL, BELIEVING MIRROR, GIFTED SPIRIT, SINCERITY, PEACEFUL, BEAUTIFUL PERSON, SPECIAL, LOVING, CARING, GENTLE, SOFT YES, CURIOSITY, RADIANCE, MYSTERY, SOFT LOVING KINDNESS, WOOD NYMPH, POWERFUL AND GENEROUS, LOVING, PEACEFUL AND AT PEACE, BUTTERFLY, UNIQUE, SPRITE, LAUGHING FULL OUT, COMPASSIONATE, SOULFUL, DEEPLY INTUITIVE, ELFIN JOY, WHIMSICAL
The word below is PRECIOUS. I tried out a couple of color schemes. The top bar seemed to capture the kind of color that appealed to Sue. Instead of using a black matte board, I decided on white.
I used 10 wraps of a variegated black and white to separate words.
I'm still not sure how the final piece will look or whether or not I will trim off the white.
I don't know if I like the individual memories all fanned out.
Or all grouped together as a shape.
Oh, by the way.....I found out that I have to move.....again!!!!
