MIXED MEDIA COLLAGE !


This started with a under-paper  -used to spare my table for paint
and texture paste  -, to which I adhered music paper,
Danish poems papers and after sprayed with same tone as
already on the under-paper - 


The beautiful Catherine Moore stamp was fussy cut and adhered
on top , and teabag paper added underneath her . The sweet ,wonderful
apple stamp, which I received from my lovely friend Donna, thank you my sweetest friend-- , was also stamped and then fussy cut , and Lynne`s beautiful flower was stamped directly onto the 
paper . 


The woman , apple ,and flower ,all was treated with lovely 
Beeswax, -a gift from my dear friend Lynne , -I gave it several
layers, (sorry you cant see it ) and it stands so beautiful and
shiny after having been buffed a bit with a soft cloth .Thank you my dear Lynne.
Also she got a little extra hair from black threads :-) 


You can see the great effect from the spraying ! I also added 
both lace and rough rope band ,  sewn to the collage, on sewing machine ,
leaving long ends of black thread to hang ,--the lovely postmark and stamped a
line from Lynne`s Affirmations , onto corrugated cardboard , were adhered. 


The paper was adhered to craft card , and a knitting yarn
was added to hang the collage.

So we already have Friday again, and here it is still
very mild, -no snow, and only rain , but I saw the sun today,
and that was wonderful !!

Hugs and love to you all,
and a happy weekend
