When I first saw the digital image of Mo Manning's "Introducing Oskar" I immediately fell in love with him as he so reminded me of my uncle Hank (nickname for Henry) who was one of my father's brothers. Hank was tall and lanky and always so full of fun. He married an American, as did my father, and her name was Sally (nickname for Marcella) and she was always a bit chubby and also so full of fun. They were my favorite uncle and aunt. Mo's images of "Mummu" have always reminded me of the women of the Old Country so I paired one of these with Oskar as Sally. I used the "Rustic Windowbox" digital image of Mo's for the window but I drew the door - and made them both from this wonderful birch wood grain paper. The clothing of Hank and Sally (also her shoes) is paper pieced and they are attached with dimensionals. The flowers are also paper pieced and doubled to make them 3-D. The wall of the cottage and the porch floor are also made from wood grain papers.
I had so much fun creating this scene of "Hank and Sally in the Old Country" - they are both gone now, as is my father, so it is a fantasy memory of them all. I hope that you enjoy. I am entering this poster/card in the current challenge on Mo's Challenge Blog at http://mosdigitalchallenge.blogspot.com/ I keep hoping to see more images of Oskar and hope to make another Old Country scene some day.
