|close-up of "The letter"|
And here is the full collage I did -it is 5" x 7" ~ click on it for more details. Once you get to the image you can click on it again for a larger version!
I used a floral background paper provided by Mary in the Collage Basics class to layer a copy of the woman printed on matte presentation paper on top of. First, I ran around the edges of her with a brown ink pad and painted her dress with shimmery Twinkling H2Os. I cut a slit under her arms so I could insert the letter. I glued the woman down to the background and then used a copy of "Presented" that I printed on vellum (sheer, almost see-through paper) over her. I had cut it so she was only half-way covered by the vellum. the black roses are a rub-on from Basic Grey. I used scraps of the vellum around the white edges of my paper and then sewed a black & white check ribbon down one edge.
Thanks, Mary. This creative work was just what I needed today! xo lenna
