many beautiful and special fabrics. I also used  Tyvek- first painting it in brown tones, -then sewing it on top of the collage, and after that burning it away again.

you can see it in those two photoes , it looks very special, and 3 dimentional!

I also used beautiful embroidered pieces and tulle,and laces

I want to give credit to Audrey Hernandez,,- whom showed this tecnique in a Somerset Studio.

This photo I did some weeks ago , when my husbond and I made a walk to a nearby mini town,---Arriving to Melsted, all the trees near the sea, was fillled with magpies- ---this is how it looked -not this one tree,only---but in maybe 10 other trees also- Fantastic!

How is your sunday ,dear friends ? I hope you enjoy it, and hope you are warm and cosy, wherever you read this . I think it is amazing ,and really difficult to understand, that many of you ,from all over the world will in a few minutes ,maybe click into my blog to read this.
I feel so blessed to be a member of this beautiful club of ours- and thankyou all of you visiting, and everyone commenting, it means so much to me.

Hugs and love

God Evening my dear friend!
I am still waiting for the sun to come up where I live in the opposite hemisphere! Isn't that amazing and yet right now I can view this amazing collage that you have only just posted a few minutes ago?
This piece is so strikingly beautiful Dorthe with its many layers of richness - the rich browns and whites against the black dead of night in laces and tulle, big buttons and beads.
Doesn't that tyvek create a wonderful effect.
Another completely fabulous piece made by your heart filled hands!
Love you and this gorgeus collage!

Wow, kære Dorthe, hvor er det bare en flot collage!

Det er meget spændende med det der brune. Denne collage er meget anderledes i forhold til mange af dine andre kreationer pga. de mange mørkere farver, men den er helt sikkert lige så flot! Du kan altså noget med materiale-sammensætningen! Og hvor lyder det spændende med arbejdsprocessen. Tænk at brænde noget af materialet. :-) Men interessant og flot hvilken effekt!

Knus, Emilie.

Jeg har helt glemt at besvare dit spørgsmål ang. mine sofapuder. Jeg har lavet dem på så simpelt en måde som stoftryk. Almindelig stoftryksfarve og forskellige ting til at stemple med - bl.a. en kartoffel og et lille plastiklåg.

Здравей Dorthe, много красив колаж, техниката е изключителна с това наслагване на пластове. Много ми харесва.
Поздрави и слънчева и усмихната нова седмица.

I have enjoyed seeing this collage you have created. A bit of a different color palette for you. How interesting the tyvek burns away. Love the image it reveals.

Hi Dorthe,
You are so right and sometimes it's good to remind ourselves how fortunate we are to be able to communicate with the click of a button. It brings our worlds closer together for sure.

I love your beautiful work of art. The colors, the mediums, everything about it is so pretty.


Yitte said...

Your new collage is so beautiful. The 3d brings it to life and the colors and all the rich lace and fabnrics are gorgeous. Great work Dorthe!!!

Have a nice evening and a wonderful new week.

Minna Perälä said...

Dear Dorthe, what a piece of art!! Such deepness in it. A real"femme fatale" collage! We have still tons of snow, but I also noticed that dozens of jackdaws (which I love :-) were sitting in pairs in our trees)
Soon the spring will be here, wonderfull:-))

Hugs, Minnamarika

Bonjour Sweet Dorthe,
I adore your collage, I adore the many layers and the incredible colors. Beautiful work.

Our weather has been very warm this winter, 75 degrees during the day, I cannot complain.

Diane said...

Saints and Apostles said...

Dear Dorthe
I am crazy about that gorgeous little piece - that is really stunning craft work!!! I'd love to follow the how-to on this. And I love the colour combination too.
Jeg nåede desværre ikke så langt med min matchbox-challenge da jeg blev optaget af endnu en syg kat (og endnu én i sidste uge), så jeg glæder mig til at her omsider bliver varmt, så der kommer lidt mere ro på til det kreative.
Knus fra Grækenland!

Wonderful collage Dorthe, it's great to work with new techniques isn't it.
Your work is exquisite!!
I have seen Starlings in the trees in central London, they come in huge numbers to roost at night. The noise is amazing.
Hugs, Angela.
