Sometimes they comes in "streams" -and here are one more,-
this time also cloth on old book cover, where I used Tywek,and napkins to make 
some special impressions on the collage.

Maybe it is hard to see, but the swirl here is burned Tywek -it gives a wonderful 
3-dimentional effect and looks great on top of the serviettes
I used .
The rusted face is made with rusting medium.

Here a closer view of the serviette , love the tarnished feeling .
I ofcourse treated it with a laque and adhessive medium,that it will not 
be too fragile- but still stands matte and paper-like.

And please click this to see the two couples of parents!
the swans with their 4 babies, and the ducks with their bigger "tail" of babies
Aren`t they totally beautiful?

Thankyou also all for all your help with the Friends Connect Gadget...
It is a wonderfull feeling to have so many commenting and helping 
I have -with yours help-found out,that it is still showing up ,everywhere outside Denmark :-).
Only for people living here, there are no gadget anymore???
The problem exists in many other countryes for bloggers ,after Google desided to call us all with our
national  name- like DK for Denmark.- and not Com- anymore!!!

Another fabulous collage, Dorthe. The burnt tyvek spiral is such a great addition, I love it. I like the image you have chosen very much as well.

Hello Dorthe
Oh what a beauty!!! I adore the textures you created on your collage and the way you used the images.
Stunning piece of art.
Wishes to you.

Your collage is gorgeous! As far as I know the Google Friend Connect still works for those with a blogger blog only. I added the follow me by email option. Some are using the linky connect but it's in beta so I am not using it. I had trouble with my blog being hacked when I used a beta add-on before so I steer clear of those.

Oh marvelous Dorthe, the burned tyvek really makes the piece pop! I saw a family of swans the other day too. Aren't they marvelous. xox

Hi Dear Dorthe,
I have been a very bad blogging friend. I am so sorry.
You have been very busy creating beautiful things, I especially love when you include driftwood in your work.
enJOY a sweet day,

Createology said...

Dorthe Dear you have made such an amazing collage and included very unique materials. Blissful Art. Such a sweet photo of the swan families. This past Sunday I was lucky enough to see some beautiful black swans at a bird sanctuary. They were like liquid black velvet. Happy creating...

Sonya Badgley said...

Dorthe, your collage is beautiful and I would like to have watched you create it! The tyvek is interesting. I've never tried using it. The layers of your collage wonderful, dear girl.
You are so talented!
The swans and ducks ARE totally beautiful. Love them.
Hugs and love to you,

Unknown said...

I absolutely love your projects!!! Wonderful! And the swans are majestic!


Mosaic Magpie said...

Love the rust corner on the face. I really need to try the Tyvek, so interesting the texture and interest it adds. I saw the lovely angel you created for Jillayne....it looks just like her I think...I called her Simply Elegant! Maybe soon the Friends/Followers will have a fix so it will show up for the Denmark people as well. At least you have one, mine is gone for good I am afraid!

Bente said...

Heia Dorthe. Dine collage er bare helt fantastiske. Du er bare så utrolig flink.

Ha en fantastisk torsdag.


Unknown said...

A particularly fascinating collage, dear Dorthe! I bought this TYVEK a few years ago. But I never knew what to do with it? You have given me another terrific inspiration. It would be nice if I had a little more free time :-)
I wish you a nice weekend. Here today is a holiday!

By the way, I love swans! They are a life long faithful.
Hugs MARTINA xxx

Minna Perälä said...

Your beautiful collage has colours of the sea - and I love it!!

Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog Dorthe,

Hugs Minnamarika

Finally here I am my dear friend, Dorthe,
Seems to be so much more to do without my Jeff here on the property!
Your collage with serviette and tyvek is so amazing and so different - it is beautiful - the colours all blend together in perfect harmony!
You are so blessed to have, not one, but two families of swans passing in front of your home - how special and rare is that in the whole world my dear sweet friend!
Love and hug you and have a wonderful Sunday - enjoying some rays of sunshine!

Emilie said...

Kære Dorthe.

Smuk collage. Rigtig god idé med at bruge en gammel bog som 'baggrund'/'bund' for collagen. Det giver en ekstra dimension til værket. Jeg kan også godt lide den rustne nøgle. :-)
Og sikken nogle søde svaneunger!

Nu er jeg snart ved at være ovenpå igen og får så småt mere tid til at følge lidt med i blogverdenen igen. Jeg har dog ikke fået lavet nogle kreationer i rigtig lang tid, så der bliver muligvis lidt stille på min blog i noget tid endnu.

Jeg kan forstå, at du har problemer med Google Friend Connect? Jeg håber, det løser sig for dig. Jeg har ikke selv oplevet problemer med det, så jeg kan desværre ikke give nogle råd.

Forsat god uge.
Knus, Emilie.

Hugs to you dear friend...
