Precious Little Girl Collage ~

I finished my piece of artwork!
Funny, huh?
I have tons to do for the anniversary party....
and NOW I want to create!
Just crazy.....
For purchase HERE too!












I have a habit of turning things that are pristine
into a grunged up mess ~
I used to love pristine too!

Now, if it looks like you dragged it behind a car for a few miles,
it got rained on and dried out, I'm happy ~




I hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday sweet friends!
hugs and love,
Dawn

Give me grunge, give me grunge! I love grunge. I am a grunge girl. Go grunge! Can you tell I am a grunge kind of woman. I knew this would ne beautiful when I saw a peek at it in one of your earlier posts and I was right.
:-) Gorgeous Dawn! But then I expect nothing less from you.

Beautiful Dawn! You've done it again!

It is funny how our change our feelings about the art we make. I was crazy for anything folk art and was always searching for it where ever I went. Even did a few things to sell at our church bazaar years ago. Now when I see these type of items, I don't really like it. But who knows, I could change my mind again.
Thank you for the lace hints, I was out bidded on a bag of really lovely old lace on e-Bay...next time. But for now I think tea dyed will be just fine. I posted the little pin cushion houses that I did.
I also posted a couple of pictures of our new baby girl (Granddaughter)...Halle, I am in love!!!!
Your friend Dear Dawn, Mary

Your "messy" collage, is just wonderfull, I too, love when things looks like "dansed on" and you made this look wonderfully grunged and timeworn, so sweet and beautifull, dear friend.
Love and big hug.

now where does a person find whole spools of sweet seam binding? I can only "seam" to find it on etsy...

Karen June Miller said...

I always want to create when I'm under pressure to meet another deadline of some kind. I know it's because it creates an outlet for any stress.

Your pieces are amazing! I always receive so much inspiration here!

And your comments about looking like it was dragged behind a car totally cracked me up. I'm the same way!

Perhaps because I left so many "perfectly good" toys and books out in the rain as a child, I am drawn to grunged up well loved beauty too. I cannot count the number of books, stuffed animals and dollies I left under the old apple tree, only for the rain or dew to "ruin"! lol They always seemed even more perfect, days later and post rescue, to me. Your collage is HEAVENLY, Dawn! xoxo Andy

Ellie said...
