Remembering Lily


Today we are remembering Lily Chilvers a truly beautiful artist and soul taken from us too soon.
To honour Lily we are sharing projects we have made in her memory using the wonderful, whimsical and wacky art she shared with us all.

For my project, I used Cedric, which was one of the first images I had gotten from Lily. 

I colored Cedric with alcohol and watercolor markers. For the border on my green cardstock, I used Spoonful of Rust from Stampendous. 

I didn't want to add too much to the card. The Spoonful of Rust and Cedric did more than enough to make the card cool. I simply wrote out my little sentiment with a white PITT pencil from Faber Castell. 

It hurts so much to know that Lily has passed....and I wanted to have this hop to try and help us all let our feelings out and share how much we loved Lily and her art. I wish I got to know her better, and I hope I did a decent job with honoring her today. To Mandy and Amber (Lily's mom and sister), please know that my thoughts are continuously with you. I hope Lily shows herself to you often. To my darling friend Suzi McKenzie, thank you SO much for all of your help. You did pretty much everything for this hop, and I am so grateful you wanted to do this with me. Below is the full hop list. Thank you for joining us all today.
