No, not mine. :-)) My husband's niece is having a baby girl and this is what I made for a baby-shower present: a photo-collage-painting!

"Fearfully and Wonderfully Made"
Collage and Mixed Media

It contains some of the sonar pictures of the unborn baby, eg middle left, and a picture of the parents.

The textures were built up with lace, tulle and cheesecloth, symbolising the "weaving together". The two corner embellishments were made out of pewter.  

The text that I incorporated into the collage, is Ps 139: 13-17

13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
How vast is the sum of them!

The baby shower was a lovely picnic in Mitchell Park, Durban. 

 Isn't this a nifty nappy cake??

I really had fun doing the collage and would be very happy to do some more, if anybody would like to order something similar! :-)
