I have done laundry, cleaned up the kitchen, done some more laundry. Made a phone call. Got Brenna her lunch. (She is home today with a crummy cold.) Cleaned up lunch. Yelled at the dogs for barking at the fence. Made myself a latte.
Guess I can't do much more. Guess I have to show you my latest collage. I like it. But it is so very nerve wracking to put it out on the world-wide web for all to see. Sigh. Well, here goes. Tell me what you think. Really.
I thought I would hang it up on the wall to see how it looked. Not the right wall color.
So I put it on the mantel, in the family room.
Better? A little faded, maybe. The lighting isn't quite right in here.
Let's do close ups.
The excerpt was from a great book that my friend, Wendy gave me. I couldn't believe what I found-a little paragraph on a mother's meanderings of her beloved child; her "summer child." So cool.
The quote is my all time favorite. I would sit by the sea forever, if I could.
I added a tag from a pair of pants I bought. Then some watch pieces I found on
Skybluepink. Have you ever been over there? Great place for all kinds of stuff!
Some raffle tickets, and then I stamped some clocks to add to the sense of time.
I found the round grommet in L.A. in the garment district, the playing card behind it??? I can't remember!!! But I had fun coloring in parts of it.
Metal letters. I found them at Marshall's of all places.
I could actually see a smaller version of this collage, now that I'm looking at these pictures.
No frame on it, though. I haven't done that part yet. To frame or not to frame? Always the question!
On to the next project...a smaller version of this, and another using a picture from one of Brenna's horse lessons.
Have a great day!
