A New Collage...and Thank You!


I am feeling much better now and wanted to thank you for your sweet get well wishes!  You all sure know how to make a girl feel loved!
I spent my downtime resting, catching up on some reading, and making a new collage!


My base was the leatherbound cover of an old ledger book.  I used a page of the little vintage notebook Kim sent me, as well as great feather and butterfly graphics from The Graphics Fairy  !  (She has such wonderful graphics~ be sure and visit her!)  Vintage wood lotto pieces, as well as a slide holder, hardware, natural elements~ a little starfish, shell, and moss~ and other graphics I had were added as well...
 


It' is a very 3-D piece...



For a little whimsy,  I stamped it with the date...



I had fun working on this piece!  I am linking to The Graphics Fairy's Brag Monday
and
Savvy Southern Style's Wow Us Wednesdays Party

Until next time...
Linda

  7. You can make THIS while not feeling so well? Your creativity just never slows down! Hope you are better!

    Do you have an old anagram set for sale? The one with the black and cream letter tiles? Thinking I could do something with it for my daughter's wedding.

    Take care! ~~ Connie

  12. You have such a creative streak! I love your collage.
    I don't think the way you do.
    When I look at your collage it is very artful and comes together with meaning... but alone all those pieces would be junk headed for the trash!

    I wonder if I could train myself to be creative like that... I have envy..can you tell? LOL
    cute collage- great talent.
