I picked up a three pack of art canvases at the Dollar Tree recently ~ here's a look at what I did with two of them. "Drama Queen" has a page from a French play as the background. I won it (along with lots of other great ephemera) in a giveaway from Liz at Lululiz in Lalaland . The design in the upper left corner is a rub-on...I think it was a perfect fit for that space. Some vintage lace, a stamp, some buttons and a paper fan add some dimension to this piece. The image of the young girl is so pretty ~ I'm sure I found it somewhere on the Internet. Wish I could remember where.
"Fly" is my favorite piece of the two. I've discovered that I love working with cheesecloth ~ it adds such great texture! I collect "fat birds" and the bird in this image definitely qualifies ~ I think it's so cute! The piece of fabric with the word fly on it is a bit of very old, very fragile blanket binding. I use it sparingly and I only have about 12 inches left. I added a "flower" made from lace, some old buttons and a vintage pin.
I'm finding these collages to be a bit addictive!!
So much inspiration ~ So little time!
