MIXED MEDIA COLLAGE !


This started with a under-paper  -used to spare my table for paint
and texture paste  -, to which I adhered music paper,
Danish poems papers and after sprayed with same tone as
already on the under-paper - 


The beautiful Catherine Moore stamp was fussy cut and adhered
on top , and teabag paper added underneath her . The sweet ,wonderful
apple stamp, which I received from my lovely friend Donna, thank you my sweetest friend-- , was also stamped and then fussy cut , and Lynne`s beautiful flower was stamped directly onto the 
paper . 


The woman , apple ,and flower ,all was treated with lovely 
Beeswax, -a gift from my dear friend Lynne , -I gave it several
layers, (sorry you cant see it ) and it stands so beautiful and
shiny after having been buffed a bit with a soft cloth .Thank you my dear Lynne.
Also she got a little extra hair from black threads :-) 


You can see the great effect from the spraying ! I also added 
both lace and rough rope band ,  sewn to the collage, on sewing machine ,
leaving long ends of black thread to hang ,--the lovely postmark and stamped a
line from Lynne`s Affirmations , onto corrugated cardboard , were adhered. 


The paper was adhered to craft card , and a knitting yarn
was added to hang the collage.

So we already have Friday again, and here it is still
very mild, -no snow, and only rain , but I saw the sun today,
and that was wonderful !!

Hugs and love to you all,
and a happy weekend

A BLESSED CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL !!


My dear friends , with this creation I wish you all a very Merry and Blessed Christmas .

Being a member of   https://mixedupcreative.com/ I got very inspiret of a creation made
by Lena Holmström , and by her tutorial shoving ,how she carve into a book , in this shabby way,-
and I made my own version in this old Danish book. 


Maria and the child greeted by lovely deer in the wood , behind the deer is a piece of
the Nativity of Jesus ,in French , and a branch - and pieces of lace,  flowers and berries on the side of Maria and Jesus  , 

My dear daughter , the grandkids and her x-husband will all celebrate
Christmas here with us, and them arriving today, I think it is time to wish
you all the most beautiful Christmas , as time will not be spend much 
online while they are with us . 

Much love and hugs to you and see you
before the New Year is celebrated
