I just wanted to show you two new pieces I created this summer,
that I have not yet shown!! 
The first is a tag, made with papers and a rolled flower.
I used both handmade paper and others !

And this is a flag that I called "wings of love"
I used a beautiful piece of  linen, on which I created a collaged heart, using
lots of different fabrics and laces. The ruler piece is paper .

I stamped a beautiful Tim Holz wing on a tea dyed piece and 
added it too ,to form the point, of the heart-
 and also added a handmade paper rolled flower. I love
the heart`s  tarnished look .

As written in my head line, we do not really have summer anymore here!
It has already started to look a bit like early autumn, with lots of winds,
rain and colder temperatures- and those most beautiful  popies from my 
garden, have long gone!!  I just thought they looked so gorgeous, and
wanted to show them to you!!

How are you around the world?? Still having lovely summer in some places I know,
others of you, just started early spring!!! 
But wether sun,rain or storm, I wish you beautiful hours enjoying your 
nature surroundings, and your creative dayes, dear friends.

Love and hugs,

Dearest Dorthe
Oh how beautiful your tag is - that's such a sweet image and you have made her shine!

Love your gorgeous flag too - the rosy background linen fabric is what I love.
You've put a lot of thought into your heart - yes the tarnished look is very special.
Angels wings speak to me too!

How lovely is the poppy - do you know it's name - maybe I can order it here, the colour is very delicate.

hugs and love

Hello my dear friend, Dorthe
from way up in the mountains as we travel to the sea - just taking a peek at your newest creations both so very beautiful - the pretty woman tag from papers and the sweetest flag from fabrics and lace. Hearts always steel my heart and this is no exception on the rose printed linen!
Just gorgeous!

Astrid Maclean said...

Oh Dorthe, both of your creations are just wonderful! You are such an artist at combining fabric, lace and paper seamlessly together!! I love both pieces but the tag with that beautiful lady I think is my favourite, she looks so dreamy and lovely!

Here in Scotland I think the weather is similar to Denmark, grey, cloudy and cool and one can sense Autumn is on the way. I don't feel ready for it yet :(

Draffin Bears said...

The tags you have made are gorgeous love the heart and the pretty fabric. I love your pretty poppy too.
Hope you are having a lovely week

Julia @ Vintage with Laces said...

Both your creations are so beautiful and look very summery, my dear Dorthe. For the last three days the air had a fall feeling in the early mornings. It's still very warm during the days and I'm looking forward to some cooler temperatures.
Have a lovely afternoon, sweetie!
Mange kys og knus,

Lovely tag and collage, Dorthe, and stunning poppies. It's supposed to be the last half of summer here, but it's been cool and breezy here for the last few weeks. It feels like autumn.

Jayne said...

Such lovely summer creations Dorthe. I do love summer and always want it to last longer than it does, I love the light nights to go walking on the beach. Our weather is cooling too. Let's hope for an indian summer. Jayne x

Красиви, красиви парчета и сърцето е невероятно Дороти.
При нас е много горещо лято и вече си мечтая за хладна есен. Обичам всички сезони и им се радвам, наслаждавай се на природата каквато и да е тя.
Поздрави и прегръдки от мен.

I know I can ALWAYS find the most beautiful things here, Dorothe...either from your hands and creative heart, or from your garden (the poppies are incredible). Happy Thursday, dear one - you make me smile! XOXO Tanya

hello Dorthe,
Your creations are as beautiful as always - you do work magic with bits of lace and ribbons...
We are still having hot summer weather but you can feel the change coming in the evenings - a few weeks still until you could say it's Fall.

~*~Patty S said...

Sew/SO lovely to see what you create dear Dorthe

Using the wing to make the point of your flowered heart is brilliant...
your handmade roses are perfect touches for these pretty pieces along with your bits of hand dyed treasures...

Your poppies take my breath away and it seems fitting that there are sweet little blue Forget-me-nots in the photo too...
who would want to forget such perfection...
so glad you showed up these...
I could stare into the centers for a very long time and how they match the delicate petals perfectly too...
Nature is so amazing and so are you dear friend!

oxo from sunny Virginia that will be getting hotter again in a few days...we are just now enjoying a little cooler weather with windows open and fresh breezes with low humidity (my favorite kind of weather!)

(((hugs))) to you and yours ♥

Both of your tags are beautiful and I am so drawn to how you combine fabric, paper and other elements to get such beautiful dimension and texture. And those poppies...wow!! Xo

Vicki Boster said...

On my- your new pieces are stunning Dorthe! I just don't know how you find the time to make all these beautiful creations! You must have more hours in your day!!

Your poppy is so very beautiful- that pink color is one of my favorite poppies. I have 1 in my garden also. I'm afraid our summer is passing way too fast!

FredaB said...

Dorthe you do such a beautiful job on your tagfs and collages. Very pretty.

I fell in love with your poppies. They are just gorgeous. I don't think I have ever seen that color combination before.
