"U"- July challenge at Berry71bleu

Hi Everyone here is my entry for the July challenge at Berry71Bleu where you are challenged to do anything!!  This is a bit of a tall order as you suddenly have the freedom to go anywhere with whatever and it’s SCARY!!
Do I go for plain and simple, pretty, pretty, a good story, WHAT???  I've mulled over it for weeks and had given up when I read Anupama’s blog post about her LO she had created.  I was inspired by her beautiful work to try my hand at a mixed media page simply called “U”.

I had this gorgeous photo of Daisy looking more like 12 than eight, taken last Easter by her Mom who is a much better photographer than me. (She has a Degree in it)  I cut two copies of it into heart shapes and just flew with it from there.  Hope you like the finished results.

The flowers were made from kitchen roll which had mopped up my paint and some of the purple vellum from the vellum hearts I used.

I've written the story about this LO for Alexa’s Blog,  Simply a Moment, which you can read below if you wish.
If you finish here, thank you so much for visiting and any comments you leave and thank you Anupama for the inspiration.
