Erosion Bundle opened,fantastic buy,beautifull gifts

Not long ago my dear friend VIOLA showed a so fantastic collage on her blog.
It is made of fabric,papers,buttons,stamps,lace,metal,-all together becoming a most beautifull, and gorgeus collage-----I had to aks to buy it.
And I was so happy when Viola said yes.
Look how she painted all ,to be a whole....
I so love it.,it is a wonderfull piece of art,dear.
When opening the packet, I found that it was also filled with the most wonderfull gifts. First this tag,so very beautifull,-look how the colours all matches..and with the collage,too
--love the fantastic feathers.

And look at this! I have admired it when seeing it on Violas blog,because of its wonderfull beauty,
it is a very special ATC, with so much work in it.
Thanks so much again sweetie.

And this wonderfull bird theemed canwas ,made with beeswax, is so soft to touch,lovely.
And read the text, --made me smile!!!!

also added was this very old ,
and beautifully looking little" book"
I feel so blessed, recieving such gorgeus gifts,
I love the art of Viola, she has a very giftet talent, and is a most sweet and dear friend.

Thankyou so ,my dear Viola, from my heart,
I love my gifts and all you do, very much, and am so happy being your friend,
you are so generous, ------and- lieb- to me.


Also I have to show you ,the result of my Erosion bundle.It was to open up today, and I was not dissapointed!!!!
This is a piece of copper, starting to turn gree,-love it

And the fabric here, got the look of almost a batic colored
piece of cloth,because of a red fabric laying on top.
The papers,also took color of water, and rust, and is now very beautifull looking
in a more brown tone, and the lace got the most special,light rose colored
tone, with a little bit of rust in it,too.

This was a special and exiting experiment, and I will certainly take part next year again--
now a little bit more "educated", in how,-and with what.....
Wishing you all, a happy evening, and all the best for tomorrow,
Love and hugs,

Hallo Sweetie, ich bin gerade mit dem Geschenk für heute nachmittag fertig geworden und kann jetzt nochmal in Ruhe schauen, was Du so Schönes von Viola bekommen hast. Die Collage ist wieder traumhaft schön, ebenso das Tag und die anderen Goodies. Das ist ja lieb, dass sie Dir so viele, tolle Kreationen dazu gelegt hat!
Dein Rostbündel ist klasse geworden! Vielleicht finde ich im Herbst auch ein Plätzchen, wo ich eins aufhängen kann.
Jetzt muss ich mich umziehen und dann fahre ich los zu meine Freundin. Sie hat Orangentorte angekündigt. Mhh, lecker :-).
Ich wünsche Dir noch einen schönen Nachmittag!
Viele, liebe Grüße und kys, kys,
