I spent a few hours today creating a couple of collages. I do so enjoy working with gorgeous old lace, vintage images and lovely little bits and pieces.
I can't get away from soft colours though, I find them so soothing and gentle. So, the first collage is made with neutrals, soft whites, creams and little hints of darker caramel. Vintage sheet music, a sweet old doily, a snippet from a Vintage French Missel, coffee dyed lace motifs, MOP buttons, vintage French seam binding, a tiny antique French key and of course a little bit of sparkle, and there you have it -
I like combining soft blues with the creams and soft whites, so for the second collage I used blue braid, fringing, seam binding, and a gorgeous vintage lace motif over the background sheet music and the rather beautiful doily. Of course, this one had to have one of those darling little French keys as well. See those tiny little blue butterflies in the bottom left corner? They were part of a little paper bag my lovely friend Dorthe sent me ( with a card inside ) last year.
And just because I had so many bits and pieces out on the table, I decided to make a matching tag for this one as well -
Yikes, I just realised that I haven't made my inchie for Every Inchie Monday yet........ oops. Hmm, it might have to wait until tomorrow.
Have a lovely day/evening wherever you are, toodlepip xxx
