Flashback Friday

Hello dear friends. I can't believe this week is already almost over!
I haven't done a "Flashback Friday" in a long time, so I thought I'd share this piece with you.
I made it in 2004, which means that Ava and Jax weren't born yet. One of these days I'll open up the frame and put their names in it. It is a mixed-media piece with lots of different elements. The background was painted with watercolors, and there's also some acrylic paint using stencils and stamps. There is lots of collage, ribbon, hand embroidery using metallic thread, metal scrapbooking pieces, and more. I really loved making this piece and it is hanging in our living room.
I hope everyone has a creative Friday. I am going to the Kennedy Space Center on a field trip with third graders.
Wish me luck!:)
