New art!

Well, I finished a couple of things today and have a few more in the works and I just had to share these with you. The two similar pieces are collaged art onto 11 x 14 canvases.

I've used the pages from an old dictionary, pages from a very old photo album that was falling apart and some copies I've made from one of my vintage botanical books ~ and I copied the artwork onto color copies of the most wonderful very old paper from my collection. Accents are vintage watch faces, old clock hands and a small branch.

The other item is a hand-stitched covered journal (5 1/2" x 8 3/4") with a small little label and a vintage button and rope closure. I'll be putting them all in my etsy store tonight!!

Very beautiful! I just love to visit and see what you've been up. I also would like to let you know I'm doing a little give-away in celebration of my two granddaughters, one of which is only three days old. I hope people stop by. I just want to share with such a neat thing like that.

These are lovely, Dawn. I have also been making things with old photo folios. I had collected a huge bin of them, that I have lately been converting into albums.

Thanks for the comment on our blog too!
