It`s no secret that I love pink ,and even more when it is in soft
tones like here. This collage is made with a beautiful old
rosa book cover, on which I mounted a very lovely
old page from a photo album-I love the golden edge 
around the photo.

It is not the real photo but a copy from my printer,
laied behind the frame, and decked wit a piece of
wonderful old tulle.

I stamped the text with a french text on the frame,
and added a mixture of  a Tim Holz die flower,
and petals from a storeboughts one. The paper petals  are
first altered and bend to look real. Also stamped the
qoute on paper before adding.

On the top I crunschet a piece of  tissue paper, and if you
blow up the first photo you will see ,that I also used a piece of  wipe
(wet towel) ,to the bottom and the right side, which give a special effect!

I hope you are  in the mood to enjoy your weekend, and 
wish you all ,my dear friends, some very happy dayes .

from Dorthe

That is a lovely collage you have created in one of my favourite colours that dusty pink colour. I always seem to return to that especially with greys too. I hope you have a lovely weekend, it is very cold here, I have seen snowdrops and hope spring is finally on its way. jayne x

Sikken en skøn collage Dorte, jeg er også til den "bløde" rosa farve, og bruger heller aldrig original fotos men printer ud, det har så også den fordel at jeg bestemmer hvor stort mit billede skal være. knus morkaren.

How beautiful, Dorthe, that delicate pink is so delicious and the collage is exquisite. You chose such a gorgeous image. I love that beautiful shade of rose.

Dear Dorthe
There is something so beautiful about old, rose pinks and paired with such a sweet image it becomes magical.
Adore your creation my friend with the touches of stamping and the wonderful tulle and flowers.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Kære Dorthe.
Sikken en dejlig forårs-yndig kreation. Jeg kan godt lide, at du har pyntet med den rosa farve. Den gør mig glad og får mig til at tænke på forår.
Jeg ønsker dig en rigtig dejlig weekend.
Knus, Emilie

Dorthe this is so beautiful! Like you I love soft pink tones, though I rarely use them in my work. I did enlarge to photo and the effect of the wet wipe behind the picture with the subtle gold tones, is so pretty, as is the beautiful piece of tulle to frame that gorgeous photo. A truly beautiful collage!

I hope you will have a wonderful weekend too! Sending big hugs and wishes for Spring to arrive soon in snowy Denmark!

A beautiful piece of collage work, Dorthe - the golden script on the frame absolutely sings, and the image is a delightful one. Your gauzy tulle and lovely flower make perfect embellishments!

Hej du skønne
Ja du er tossetpjattet med rosa , men du er også god til det , den er virklig blevet flot.
Håber du kan holde varmen og at du ikke er ved at få helt sne kuller, jeg indrømmer gerne jeg gad godt at være på Bornholm lige nu , jeg elsker sne , men det er nok lidt hårt for jer .
Mange knus og kram

Good morning dear Dorthe (may be for you it's afternoon or evening, let it be a good one too then). Your collage is gorgeous! It's a beautiful old pink colour. I love the effect of the tissue and the old tule. And the stamping and painting you did makes it even more beautiful. The quote is so true!

hugs and wonderful day,

Erika said...

Dear Dorthe,
I love your pink mood ♥
It is telling from the end of wintertime and a big hope for spring.
Deine Farben sind allerliebst, auch die herrlich alte Spitzen. So schön verträumt, passt es zu meiner Sonntagsstimmung, hier und heute. Gerade hat mein Mann erzählt, dass es wieder kälter werden soll. Ich glaube es nicht!
Ich wünsche Dir noch einen wunderschönen Tag!
Sende Dir viele liebe Grüße und Küsse ♥
Deine Erika

Dear Dorthe,
I just love this pink piece. It is really just my style. I can't get enough of these old pictures. I make many collages with them too. I think I will use some of my old books for this type of project. You always inspire me!

I'm like you, I just love the soft rosy pink too.
Your collage is exquisite with so much detail, that delicate lace, the sweetest image of the little girl and the soft golden edge framing her image...
