I made this one using a real dried leafe, a beautiful
Paper Whimsy image, -wood piece, from my garden, and
I loved to put brown glitter around the leafe,to make it a bit
frosty :-)

old buttons and pearl embroidered fabric pieces,-
I used gesso and a bit of red ink to match the background letters.

The fun background is an old kind of play card I once
bought from Beth`s ,-Gathering Dust .She has two wonderful Etsy shops....
You can click the link and find them on her blog.

Next time I will show you my first giveaway win from 
a danish blogger friend....
Till then I wish you a very beautiful
Thankyou to everyone following me here, and writing 
dear comments- you all means so much to me.

Hugs and Love

Brown glitter, dearest Dorthe! Wow, it is divine and the first I see in your art. A little bit dreamy a little bit shabby, it´s a wonderful idea to use glitter and a a piece of wood from your garden. Love it sweet friend :) Love and hugs Deine Erika

Hello and good morning, my dear Dorthe! Your collage is so very beautiful with all those nature details. I'm always impressed to see you using such fragile dried leaves in your collages. The background looks great. I first thought it was needlepoint embroidery. Very cool.
Happy weekend to you, sweetie :-)!

suziqu's thread works said...

Hello and Good Morning to you sweet friend!
This Autumnal collage is just gorgeous!
I love the overall colour effect of the season with the reddish brown shades - looks so perfect with the creams but what makes this so special is the use of one of your very own leaves and that sweet sweet image - she looks so innocent!
The background is so very effective too!
I hope your weekend is joyful and busy in the shop.
Much love and happiness!
