The brown square background represents the scrumptious fresh waffles we used to have when we visited my grandmother. To get this effect I painted the background a light golden brown and then covered it with a grid mask and dabbed a darker brown over the top.
I flicked white paint over that to represent the icing sugar we used to have over the warm waffles.... gosh my mouth is watering just thinking of them!!
I edged the page with the flag colours.
I then cut out the Atomium out of silver mirri card. We used to visit this building every time we went to Brussels. I loved it there.
Next I adhered the wording and the Belgian flag in the shape of a heart. I've written the family names on the side of the page.
There is a touch of sadness doing this page because my grandmother, aunt and uncle and my father are no longer with us. However I have lots of fond memories.
