Today we are remembering Lily Chilvers a truly beautiful artist and soul taken from us too soon.
To honour Lily we are sharing projects we have made in her memory using the wonderful, whimsical and wacky art she shared with us all.

Blog Hop List


I made this tag a while ago after my brother Richard died. He wasn't just my brother, he was my friend and losing him was devastating. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about him.


 But no matter how much I miss him, the reality is that time goes on and so must those of us left behind. That was the inspiration for this tag.


I used Lily's tree and grass stamps and to create the top of the tree I used the hair off of Steampunk Violet.





Lily was such a talented artist and a beautiful person. She will be greatly missed. But she will live on always in her Octopodes!



Thanks for stopping by. Please follow the links above to continue on the hop.


Hugs,
Anne Marie
