The first tutorial in ArtistClass Spring, and a beautifull Gift.

When I saw that Lisa from Tarnished and Tattered was one of the artists that offered a
tutorial, in Mary`s Artist Class, I was sure I wanted to take part in this wonderfull event for the 3 time.
Lisa is a dear friend, and she makes the most beautifull, and special art,-I love her style, and have several pieces from her.
She made a Mothers day collage tutorial for this class,
and here is my interpretation.

My center piece is made with packing tape transfer, as I did not have the actual
materials.It is mounted on many different laces, that are glued to an old book cover.



Here is the mother mounted on an old crystal
and the beautifull image from a magazine, a painting from
a danish painter.
**********************************************************

A little packet full of the most gorgeus old laces,rolled around a sweet tag.

Inside this organza bag,there was a little box filled to the brim with
small wonders of


this beauties,-Sissie ,I loved them when you showed them on
your blog, thanks so much dear.

and on top of that a card with a beautifull heavy old lace


I did not want to roll it off,but here a little glimpse of the card.

And here, all the lovely things. As you can see there was even a piece
of band with flowers too,
Dear Sissie, this is a wonderfull gift, and you are a very dear woman,-sweet friend,
