Baby Picture of My Mom (Keepsake as of Nov. 28, 2016)

This summer,  I repaired and edited my mom's baby picture. (You can see the before and after pictures posted here on July 31, 2016). And in early November,  I created a color version, using Painter's digital pastel.  I thought all along that I wanted to make the image into a keepsake, and yesterday I got started.  I printed out a copy of the colorized photo, collaged it onto a canvas board, and put down the first coat of color for the background.  Right now it looks rough, but that's the idea: I want it look worn.  I will smooth things out with the next coat of color.  I also plan to add a border of jute ribbon, in pink.
