FINALLY A NEW COLLAGE

I finally finnished a new collage piece.
I used some of the inspiration from one of the wonderfull workshops
I am still a member of: Tattered Threads Fabric Art from JoAnnA Moss Hill Studio,
it is still running, and a great place to be and learn.


This piece is made on linnen .The Marie photo is in paper, and covered with a piece of Mica flake ,and the whole thing is a mix of paper and fabric with stamps and old buttons, and a key.




It was good starting creating again. I actually startet this piece while staying with my daughter, and then finished it at home. -I like using the Mica -, as an old broken window- like here.
LISA from Mud Hound Studio helped me find this great thing, thank`s dear Lisa.
Hope you are all having a wonderfull sunday,
and by the way, Thank you so much all for your big interest in my giveaway, it was wonderfull recieving so many sweet and loving comments from all of you.
Love and hugs, Dorthe

A WONDERFULL EXCHANGE



Start december I asked LISA to buy one of her beautifull art pieces,a banner, and two old angels.She, sweetly asked me if we should make an exchange instead, because she liked my dolls.


And I was happy, and honoured.I so wanted to have this very beautifull banner from her,and Lisa made one especially for me, --- I love it. Look how very beautifull all the old papers she used is.

My favorite is Maria with the Jesus child.And the Y is mounted on a velvet piece of paper, and she did the letters herself with German glass glitter,-so very wonderfull, -you have to see it for real, as the pictures don`t do it justice.
She also gave me a sweet,sweet flower, made on a piece of old quilt, so very lovely.




And extra ,extra theese two big tags, I tell you they are so beautifull, -I love the sepia tones, and the white stamps on top.



And the old plaster angels, shown first in this blog is special for me, as they are very rare to find here in DK.


Lisa, my dear-I thank you from my heart for your so gorgeus
packet,with all your special art-pieces.
I so love your banner , and the beautifull tags.

Thank`s dear friend
-----------------------------------------------------
I hope you are all well,-tomorrow afternoon here,
I will draw the winner of my angel ,make a tag, and
send her on to the lucky one monday morning.
wishing you dear friends a happy evening.
Love and hugs Dorthe

MY FIRST GIVEAWAY

It is time for my first giveaway, --not that I`m having any round numbers coming up,
but it must be a little bit more than, two years now, since Tina from Tiny Bears gave me this blog installed and finished to use, as a christmas present.
I`m still very thankfull for that Tina.

silk and cotton. The winner will recieve her with a personal tag in her hands,instead of the
flowerpetals.
I hope you likes her.

All you have to do, is enter a comment on this blog,- you can do this from wherever
you live in the world, and you can do it even you don`t have a blog,- just remember to
give me an email adr. to be contacted on.
I will draw the winner friday the 22/1
when returning home from Copenhagen.

This is how the Eastsea looks like for the moment being. the picture is taken from
my back garten,which goes direct into the water.


It`s wild ,very stormy (18meter pr secund) and very beautifull
,and with more that 4 meter high waves.


Tomorrow I`m sailing to Sweden, and from there with bus to Copenhagen
to be with my daughter for a while, I hope the weather is a bit more friendly by then.



So wishing you all a beautifull week,and thanks alot for all sweet comments

privat problems, continues to create the most fantastic little creatures,
wallhangings-bottleart,-just to mention some of the many art pieces,-she is
