Spring collage #4



This is my final collage in the series titled, "flutterby, flutterby". The series of four will be listed on ebay Sunday night. I drew the little nest just for this collage using colored pencils (my favorite medium). Yesterday, we had a great day going to a couple of estate sales. I found some more frames at the first one, yay! And, also a little silver cream and sugar set on a tray that is reeeally tarnished. The lady that rang me up said, "Boy, that is going to take a while to clean!" But I told her I love tarnished silver, the more tarnish the BETTER! She just laughed. At the second sale I found a great set of paper coasters with a black and white silhouette and a tartan plaid recipe box just chock full of old recipes! Will have fun using those in future collages! Will take some pix tomorrow, promise. Bye for now!

Oh, I'm so glad Stephanie! It was very hard to part with these collages, and I really loved doing them. But it makes it so much easier when I know that you will enjoy them so much! Happy Mother's Day! :)
