Waxed Collage - and more gifts, from dear friends of mine.

As some of you know, I am taking part in some of the classes on Roses on my Table and this is my first waxed collage. I love Zinnia`s  workshops, they are wonderfully teached with lots of videos, and you can take all the time to create-as they are not time limited.
I`m kind of out of my zone hier with all the colors, but I loved to try working like that.

This beautiful little pillow is from my dear friend Marie of Lost bird Studio
can you see the beautiful details ? I so love the nest.

Here from the behind,with a pocket, and verce -it is the most lovely pillow,from a most sweet friend.

And this wonderful tag, ,with the D and the sweet text , isen`t it lovely?

Sweet Marie also send me some beautiful serviettes-I almost can`t bare to use them, as they will be gone then-hihihi- look closely to also see the beautiful embossing thing Marie gave me to my Big Shot maschine.
Thankyou sweet, for all your lovelyes, -I adore them.

The next packet came from my very dear friend, from Denmark :Anni

She made me the sweetest fabric card, with the two soul friends,isen`t it just so romantic and beautiful?

And the most lovely pink tussie mussie--We had agreed to swap a tussi for our birthdays which were only3 dayes apart from each other. This is in my favorite color- pink :) I love the tag,too.

Anni also made me this beautiful icon fastened on an old music sheet-and the madonna made on an old
domino brick.The doily and all fabric used for my gifts Anni colored with Avokado- so wonderful colors.
This is also a beautiful icon-in such a lovely color-and another domino on top ,with
vergin Mary- so very lovely-
Thankyou so much dearest friend- I love it all, Anni.

And last week I had a wonderful surprice, recieving the most beautiful present from dear Sharon from Livewire Jewlery  see the sweet tag, with the hearth lock-

Inside I found the most gorgeus vintage rosary - I collects them and this is so beautiful.
It was hiding in Sharons lovely pouch- real shabby and wonderful.I love the rose with bling inside.

Sharon even added beautiful bits and pieces -beautiful babric and buttons-and the juicy green handcolored doili. Sweet friend, I love it all. Thankyou from my heart.

The rest of this week, I am having my Mathilde here, her parents have had a huge water disaster in their cellar and garden, because of a very big thunderstorm that hit Copenhagen ,where they live- so the sweet little girl will have some dayes on hollyday with her grandparents :)
Well now you know that I will be not that much on my computer this week- but I will have lots of fun here, and return very soon.
Till then  I wish everyone all the best- and sends you love and hugs.
Also welcome to new followers,  I am so happy to see you all.

Your collage is beautiful Dorthe, the colors are amazing! So sorry to hear about the water disaster your family has had, I do hope things get dry quickly. You have more beautiful gifts from wonderful friends too! There seem to be a lot of fellow bloggers who have late June Birthdays. Enjoy your time with sweet Mathilde.

Dear Dorthe
The colours in the collage is so rich and intense but at the same time such a gorgeous romantic feel to this piece of art - sublime.
Oh those gorgeous, gorgeous birthday gifts that you so deserve.

Hi sweetie, Your wax collage is fantastic! I love that it has so much texture from the different materials you have used. I can imagine that it was fun to try something new.
You've been spoiled a lot for your birthday and the gifts from our dear friends Marie and Anni are beautiful. Sharon's pouch is so very pretty too and I know that you will turn the bits and pieces in something wonderful.
I'm sorry to hear about the water disaster at your daughter's house. Hopefully they can get the mess out of their basement soon. Mathilde must be very happy that she can stay with you. You two will have lots of fun. I'll keep my fingers cross for some better weather, so that you can spend some time at the beach with her.
Have a great week, dearest Dorthe!
Sending you mange kys, mange knus og tusind kærlige hilsener :-),

Your collage is lovely.I enjoy the colors so much. I am in a mini love affair with orange these days. Oh, those gifts from Marie! What a wonderful generous soul You gift each other so beautifully, I love the serviettes and cards and the stunning tussie mussie from Anni! The assemblage and rosary and other treats from Sharon are fabulous. You have beautiful soul friends. Thanks for for sharing the gifts!!!

Dearest Dorthe, I so love the beautiful waxed Rossetti image - just how clever are you? It is so full of beautiful colour and she with the reddest hair! It is inspiring me to try it!
You have received some very beautiful gifts from Marie - the little pillow, the tag and those serviettes with the roses are divine. I shall have to give you a link to copy them onto tissue paper and save the originals.
And Anni's gorgeous card and tussie mussie in that divine rose paper and the Virgin Mary image - beautiful!
How sweet of Sharon to send that rosary in the little bag.
You know my sweet friend - you are only receiving back just a little of what you give! Enjoy, enjoy!.
I do hope all will come good from that incredible rain damage to poor Nadja and Rune's cellar! OMG what a terrible mess to clean up but on a positive note- you get a whole week with little Mathilde to spoil and I don't think much creating but happy times playing and cuddling.
Have a wonderful week sweet friend and I am thinking of you.
Big hugs and kisses,
Suzy xoxoxox

Dorthe, such eye candy! Love your latest wax collage. She has some tempting looking classes, for sure.

Lisa said...

Well sweet friend, I've finally crawled out from under the massive pile of smelly laundry to visit you!
Wow, you are loved & admired by so many people! That is probably the best gift you got this year, knowing that you touch so many. Everyone has blessed you with amazing work. I always love to get packages from Julia, yours are wonderful! And how lucky you have one of Suzi's beautiful journals! Her work inspire me so. Sharon, Anni & Marie also gifted you generously. Mine should arrive soon, I'm afraid in that company I'll look like an amateur tho! LOL
I love the bon fire pictures. What an interesting tradition.
Hope all is well with Mathilde & her Mother. Have the storms passed?

Unknown said...

Ganz zauberhafte Geschenke hast Du bekommen, liebe Dorthe! Du kannst wirklich stolz auf Deine lieben Freunde sein.

Hi Dorthe-love seeing your pieces made in the Roses group. I belong there also, but I found your blog through Suziq's blog--beautiful stitching work you do!!

Evi said...

you must have been in heaven to have Mathilde with you. It is too bad, that it was under such circumstances. Hope the mess got cleared up....water in the basement is terrible.
Your collage came out beautiful. I love the texture.
I also enjoyed all the wonderful gifts you got from such creative friends.
It might get me in the mood!
Enjoy the summer,
many hugs, Evi
