Mind Wide Open Creative Contest- "Remembering Lily"

Over at Mind Wide Open, they are having a contest to get your creative juices flowing. I had to include this image of a girl, and use any medium to creative art with it. Also given was the work "Remembrance" to inspire you.
I decided to make a pillow, and named it "Remembering Lily".
I created a story about the pillow and the image of the girl.

I used "remembrance" by including an old postcard this girl, Lily sent to her parents while away at school in Paris. Also items that this girl might have worn, like the buttons, lace, anything that her parents can remember her by while shes gone at school.




I also used lace, vintage buttons, fabric, silk flowers, and paper.





So please head over to Mind Wide Open and vote for me!!
