New artwork for JoAnnA!

I just completed a couple of projects using JoAnnA's collage sheets from her website ~ Moss Hill Studio.com. I've done something a little out of the ordinary for me and really ended up liking it!!

I don't know why but I think everything I make has to have a message, what is that? Except for maybe the nest assemblages ~ they speak for themselves.

This particular artwork was created on an 11 x 14 canvas. It speaks of how we all are a certain age to ourselves, in our own minds. Not our actual age, but an age we feel we should still be . . .



And a little bookmark using a precious paper doll and another of JoAnnA's adorable dresses. This image so reminds me of my childhood!



Try something new, you just might like it!

Wishing you a great Tuesday sweet friends ~

xxoo, Dawn

Dawn that is gorgeous. It is a saying I am forever using!! Maybe it helps us accept that we are getting older in years but don't feel it. Well not mentally anyway

I love both projects! The paperdoll one is especially delightful to me, because it also reminds me of when I was a little girl. I spent hours and hours of my 'little girlhood' playing with paperdolls and creating new clothing for them. I even still have some of them.

Fun stuff! You always do such beautiful work no matter what it is.

Very nice! And it is a truth. I say it all the time - age IS just a number. My number just happens to be 50. :) Only I have a hard time convincing myself of that!

Deb said...

Love your "age is just a number" collage & the balancing numbers 18 & 40 is brilliant! :-}

I come to your blog to be inspired and to feel relaxed and calm...sometimes I minimize it just to continue the music. We don't know each other but I wanted you to know that if you will stroll on over to my blog, you will see that I've selected you to receive two blogging awards. Thank you for sharing your talent.

Hi Dawn, I was gone for the weekend and had to catch up on your post. Love the fairy garden and again thank you for the images. I have a Christmas book w/CD images. It really has nice clip art to use. The last post with your artwork you completed are as always gorgeous. The canvas, Age Is Just A Number, reminds me of what my Mom would always say, "I feel so young until I look in a mirror."
Hugs,
Bonnie

Wow that is so cool!! Did you make the lady? I would love to have a ton of those, all different, dressed in neat outfits to go around a nusery. Can you tell that all I am thinking about is the baby? It would be really really neat.
Love ya'll!!!!
I will call you today.

Trying something new is very good advice! :D

Love your little paper doll tag...so charming and looks a bit like some I might have once had. (I even got to play with my mother's paper dolls since she kept them in such good shape...Rosalind Russell was one and there were so many other Hollywood stars that she had. Such fun!)

Cottage Rose said...

Oh Dawn; you are so right, I sure don't feel my age. And I hope to never feel my age only younger. I love your art work, just so pretty.

Hugs;

Your site is wonderful! I love the fairy garden.

Lori said...

love the artwork Dawn and the thought behind it too...i was just thinking about my age today...how long i have been with my husband, how long i have been a nurse and it really blew me away...i don't feel like i should be 42...it's funny how you grow older, but you still feel like the young girl you once were...not that 42 is OLD, you know what i mean...i did not know that JoAnna sold collage sheets...i popped over to have a look and they are really cute, next time i need some i know where i will look first...thanks!!!
