Zodiac Challenge - Aquarius

The lovely Deborah Wainwright has started a new monthly challenge based around the signs of the zodiac - I've been pondering all month on how to represent this and what to make.  Not surprisingly I've gone with the first thing that popped into my head when I read Deborah's blog.  see details here

Apart from Gemini for my birthday, the only other sign of the zodiac I know the dates for is Aquarius as it's my Mums birthday is this month.

All the elements of my page somehow link to Aquarius, this month and most importantly my Mum.

-  For the background I've brayered on Inky Pool and Lake Wanaka paint and stamped circles in the same colours and small circles in black ink to represent the water element of Aquarius. 

- Next I stamped and embossed some snow flakes for the snow we had today and the fact Mum dislikes the "stuff" with a passion. 

- Next is a rare photo of the two of us together - both a bit camera shy ! The green flowers represent Mum's favourite colour.

- The wording is a mixture of stamped and printed for some variation.

Thank you Deborah for a thought provoking new challenge !
