Child O' Mine

Good Morning Everyone~

Here is a collage I made on a canvas called "Child O' Mine"

Supplies used:

Matte medium
Collage pages of little girls
Tissue Paper
Some flowers and bows
Encaustic Wax
Antique in brown

I put the tissue paper on with the Matte Medium and then put the pictures over that
also with the Matte Medium.  I put the lettering on the side and added the lace in the
corner.  I added some flowers and bows.  With the girl on the right bottom, I cut slits
on her shoulders and put two flower petals to look like wings and added glitter, then
added a heart brad to her chest.

After all was done, I went over everything with and antiquing mixture of brown to
give it a weathered look.  Then I brushed wax over the whole canvas.

I love making collages, each one has its own little story and even if they don't, they
look very weathered and old as if it was in your grandma's attic!!
Hi there:  Here is a collage I made, a very large one, of our visits to Paris and New York on
our Honeymoon.  There is a myriad of ephemera, a playbill from a play, Phantom Of The
Opera, matchbooks from restaurants, an entire collection of memories.

I hope someday to go back to Paris so I can make another one Part 2.  I had so much
fun making this.  The gold German Dresden strips around the edges really made it

I hope you enjoy it and any comments are welcome!

I had so much fun making it.  The other members have been wonderful helping me as I am not that computer literate but in the end I finally got it!
Be on the lookout for my project on May 1st! from the Altered Pages Design Team Blog.
I look forward to your comments and stopping by.

Altered Pages Design Team Contributor

Well it has been a few months since I have written anything on here.  I just got some great news that I was chosen to be on the Altered Pages Design Team.  I am so excited as I always wanted to be on one, but on the other hand, I want to be able to  live up to their standards.  Some of these people are amazing.  The person in charge, Lyneen has been wonderful to me and I made friends with Roni who has helped me tremendously.  Now it is up to me to get the ball rolling.

I thought I would start with a collage as my due date for my project is coming up and want to get it done.  So wish me luck and if you have a chance, stop by my blog as I will be putting lots more stuff on it.

Thanks so much
