"One Day" Mixed Media Layout by ~ Misty

Hi everyone, today I'm sharing a special page I created for a sweet family who lost their son in December.  He was such a handsome and bright young man that everyone loved and this loss has effected our small community greatly.  You can read about the story here

I think about this family (and the family of the sisters) constantly.  I really wanted to something for them, so I decided to start an album using Donna's Denim art journal.  This of course, is just one of the pages that I've started...

Unfortunately, I'm not someone who creates with a picture already in my head. It usually starts with a background and then I go from there.  This particular picture seemed a perfect fit for the dreamy feel of the background. 

I decided that instead of throwing away the negatives to the 3D foam keys I would use them to create the texture in the background that I would usually get from modeling paste. 

This will probably be one of the last pages of the journal (see how well I plan? lol).  
It's a reminder that while the pain felt from losing Braeden is deep, it is only temporary.
One day they will be reunited again. <3

Here is the video:
(Unfortunately, I was having complications, and there's no background music)
