OK....don't faint ~




I actually made something!!!
In my studio!!! It's been waaaaay too long ~

I fell in love with an amazing antique moth print
that Karen of The Graphics Fairy
so graciously gifted her readers
and knew I would have to make something with it!

Here's my antique moth collage....
available in my shoppe too!












It feels so good to make something!!!



 I found a SWEET giveaway too!!!

Dawn

Dawn amor, this is so pretty! You weren't kidding when you said you were creating :) You do it so well! Amor where did you find those lil watchmakers vials? I tried to blow it up and see what was inside, but I must be tired and without my reading glasses I just couldn't make out what was inside. But your piece is LOVELY! Love & besos, to you! Rose

Oh my goodness Dawn! I am so jealous of you, envious of your wonderful, fabulous talent. That's a sin, right? This is really so so beautiful. I would love to have a whole craft room/cottage decorated around this piece! Absolutely gorgeous. It just sings to me! Love it, love it, love it!!!!

Hugs and kisses my creative friend...Tracy :)

Looks wonderful Dawn!
It feels terrible when you haven't 'created' anything for awhile, doesn't it?!!

Theresa said...

Beautiful Dawn! Absolutely gorgeous. I need to create something. It feels good to get away from it all and focus on creating:) Have a blessed day dear friend!

Love the antique moth print collage. I know exactly how you feel when it has been way too long between creative moments~expect I am not in your 'creative leaque' at all. Thanks for sharing your project. It is beautiful. deb

Miss Sandy said...

Beautiful! Dawn, you are way too hard on yourself, you create everyday - you make a beautiful life for your family and it shows in your willingness to jump in and start a booth with your hubby, in hosting family gatherings, in prettying up things for your precious Clara, in devoting your time and attention to Noah when he is home from school, in styling your home, in sharing so generously here in on your blog. Creativity is about so much more than just making art and you are an artist extraordinaire at making not only beautiful art but at beautiful living. Thanks for being an inspiration!

How lovely, it has such an English Edwardian study look to it. I know it would be displayed on a heavy piece of furniture next to english bone china tea cups and saucers and scattered among insect journals. Sea Witch

I just did a project with this same image, Dawn! I just love it. Hoping to make a few more and sell them, too.

Suzanne said...

Projects like this is why I visit The Feathered Nest. Wonderful with its mixed media. Although I work mainly in fabric you inspire me. Question. What's in the little vials?

Julie Whitmore Pottery said...

I admire the elements all being of the same patina, so that the piece is very harmonious. Wonderful!

Gorgeous wall hanging, Dawn!

The Rustic Victorian said...

June said...

Dawn, do you know what an inspiration you are to me? I would love to be able to create such beautiful things, just out of my head, but I seem to always have to use other's beauty to create my own. I guess that is why I love the Somerset publications so much, because I can follow the instructions and make something pretty. You however can just pull something out of your brain.
Just beautiful.

debsea said...

I'm glad you found some time for creating. That collage is beautiful. You always seem to know just what pieces to add to an image to make it really special.

Blessings!

Createology said...

Your collage is beautiful and the tiny vials really draw the viewer in. It is wonderful to spend time being creative in the studio. Happy creating...

Romeo said...

"She" LOVES moths and moth prints?!? Oh yes she does!! So I thought "she" would faint when she heard you had not created anything in a while, but "she" maintained, just sat there in disbelief with a tinge of sadness for mew. But then I told "her" to check out the moths. "She" looked. And then "she" did faint. I believe that means "she" really liked it. Pardon me, I must go find some cold water to throw on her face.

Martha, Vintage Trifles said...

That is absolutely fabulous and (lol) so "us"! Have a happy Easter sweetie! M.

Gracefully Vintage said...
