Miyono Dances

My mom always liked the song "I hope you dance" and said she identifies with it a lot.  I guess I had that in the back of my mind when I named this image after her.  I feel like the cranes were dancing in the background, so I used Miyono since she's the dancer of the group.  

When I first covered the frame with this crane washi... I admit, I had a hard time parting with it. It has become of of my favorite papers!  But I knew it would make a lovely frame, so I reluctantly used it on this one.  Now I'm glad I did since I really liked how it looks on the frame.  Secretly I am wondering if I should pull this one and keep it for myself?!  We'll see if it makes it to the table.  Ha ha ha!

Found these acrylic flowers at Craft Supply in Honolulu!  So glad I made the time to visit that store.  I used to go all the time when they were located on King Street, but haven't shopped there in years.  Added some crystal bling flourishes for interest.

So what do you think... sell of keep?  I'm on the fence!

Aw, gorgeous frame! Love how Miyono is orchestrating the cranes. Awesome frame! hmmmm... It would definitely sell for sure! It would be a hard choice for me too. I wish you luck on your choice.
Have a great day!

I'd keep it and maybe put your Mom's photo in it? It came out really pretty!
