Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. ~ 1 Peter 4:10

The Legacy Tree

Not too long ago I had the privilege of creating two custom pieces for a dear friend to give as special gifts to loved ones.  She was wanting something handmade, unique and personalized for two very important people in her family. So after visiting with her and getting some ideas of what she was looking for I created these two mixed media paintings.

The paintings include collaged papers, acrylic paint, family names, special word attributes, and a bible verse: "Generation after generation stands in awe of your work; each one tells stories of your mighty acts." ~ Psalm 145:4. 

She was thrilled with the way they turned out and I was so honored to have been involved in creating a special keepsake for her family!

The holidays are fast approaching and I wanted to offer a unique gift idea for a special family member!  Maybe for the person who has everything and you never know what to give them!  The Legacy Tree is a unique, handmade, customized mixed media painting.  We will work together picking out size, colors, names included and any other special features you'd like your painting to include.

Contact me for more information if you are interested, but please act quickly as my custom orders for the holidays are filling up!  tatteredartstudio@gmail.com 

Happy creating,
