I had fun creating this little tag in black and white, using both
fabric and papers-  this sweet image is from one of  June Mac`s wonderful
older sheets - so beautiful.

Here I stamped the image on a piece of linnen, and added old papers,
as well as new- to create a little collage, in nature colours,
which I love.

The close up, shows how the fabric only recieved a diffused stamp
of the girl, which I like ,as it makes it look real altered!!

The last christmas gift I recieved ,after it had been traveling for a long time.
Dear SHERRY from / had posted this
 fantastic cone long before christmas,-but it only arrived just before,the 23-12!!

Sherry created the cone with brownish/black long haired material, 
and a long ,long tail of many different laces and ties-
and nested a colourful sweet origami bird on top.

Look how lovely she fits in colours - it was wrapped in the 
wonderful piece of fabric you can see underneath!!
Thank you  so much ,dear Sherry,-you are alwayes such a kind and sweet blog friend.

The last photo today is from yesterday, before it started snowing again.. but when it had
turned very cold, as you can see on this beautiful sky!!
..Today all is white and ...still cold.

My dear friends,  and followers, I hope your weekend
has been good and are filled with great experiences and happy hours, relaxing and having fun.
I wish you all a new and beautiful week ahead!

Warm hugs and love from Dorthe

A really lovely tag, and the collage just makes my heart sing... wonderful vintage look to the stamping on linen, and the layers of text and fabulous neutral colour palette - it really is wonderful, Dorthe!

So glad that Christmas present finally finished its journey to you... lovely. And what a beautiful photo of the tree silhouettes, thank you for sharing it.

Fresh new snow for a fresh new week. We are still bone dry but hoping for rain later this week. Your collages are very beautiful. So rich in texture and layers. That little origami bird really did some flying around this world of ours. So happy she landed fine and that you like this nature themed cone. Blessings Dear...

Emilie said...

Kære Dorthe.

Som altid fine kreationer! Jeg kan godt lide, hvordan du har tilføjet sort på den første collage. Det giver en spændende kontrast til de hvide blonder.

Her er sneen først kommet i dag. Det fyger og inviterer ikke til at gå udenfor.

Jeg vil ønske dig en rigtig dejlig ny uge.
Knus, Emilie

Bettina Breiding Hansen said...

Så smukt og fint - elsker kontrasten mellem sort og hvid - giver noget ekstra skarpt og samtidig blødt!!!
Og dejlige og smukke gaver!! Knus Bettina

Nydelig tags, Dorthe.
Har dere så mye snø? Vi har nesten ikke noe snø enda. Det er ganske unormalt på denne tiden.
Ønsker deg ei flott uke.

I adore your tag collage, it's beautiful! I hear what you are saying about your gift flying around for a long time. One never knows once you mail something if it will truly "make it" to it's destination. xo R

Such a beautiful tag, I especially like the stamp being so faded, it does look time worn. Your gift is gorgeous, the origami bird is just adorable on top of his birdy nest.

Beautiful tag and collage Dorthe, the diffused stamp of the little girl gives a lovely vintage effect...simply adorable...Jan x

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Dorthe, Your black and white tag is gorgeous and you know I love that combination together. Lovely altered tag and the little faded stamp makes it perfectly vintage looking and old. Love it.

Sherry's gift is gorgeous. I love the sweet birdie on top of the darling cone nest. She is so talented and carries such a kind heart within.

Have a great week.
Stay warm in your cold weather.

Dear Dorthe
The card and tag using June's images are so very beautiful.
When I had computer problems last year I lost all of the images I had from June, so many lost for ever, I was deeply upset as she created beautiful image sheets.
I love the way you diffused the image of the child, so soft and gentle.
What a beautiful gift you received from your dear friend.
Have a beautiful day.

Good evening my dear Dorthe
Such a sweet tag you created with June's image and I loved how you used the linen for the second image on your collage. It is so soft and delicate in your unique style as always.

Nice of Sherry to send you that cone with the bird who has been flying over the ocean to arrive at your door.
A lovely gift indeed!

Hope you are keeping snuggled up and out of the snow storms. I can't imagine how cold it is right now over there. So warm and sunny everyday here!

My love and thoughts are with you sweet friend and I will email you soon before the weekend!
