A New Christmas Collage and a Fun Giveaway Win!


I worked on a whimsical collage this week featuring Jolly Old Saint Nicholas!  Starting with an 8" x 10" stretched canvas, I enlarged old sheet music as my background.  I altered a cute pink ribbon with an old glittered cardboard light reflector and added one of The Graphics Fairy Santa heads, and glittered around it.



I scanned an old postcard and edged it in paper doily and pink rick rack~ it's such a lovely romantic image~ and glittered three 1930's chipboard letters with vintage glitter...


Don't you love the sweet message?


The swallows were taken from an old postcard on The Graphics Fairy site, too~ be sure and visit her, if you already haven't~ she has the most wonderful graphics!  This will be going into my Romantic Farmhouse etsy shop!



Recently, I won a fun giveaway from Deb of Loyalist Cottage !  Deb has a fun blog, a great sense of humor, and often makes me laugh!  I hope you'll stop by and say hi from me!



I won this cute vintage tablecloth~ her mother made it~ and fun notecards...


as well as these cute cards~ I LOVE dog art...


AND she silkscreened and made this wonderful pillow slip!  She sells other great styles in her etsy shop, too!
Thanks so much, Deb~  I love everything!

  5. Oh, I love dog art too! My youngest daughter just goes crazy when she sees a Boston Terrier on something, as she has one. I have those same Santas printed out from The Graphics Fairy. I just love that she gives us so much free stuff! What a sweetheart. Your collage is beautiful.
