This is so pretty...a OWOH gift from Kathy at Artful Muse who will also be sending me a copy of her new book Tierra Red once it is published. I'm waiting anxiously as I need a new novel to read..maybe for spring vacation...
Mixed Media Collage with original background photography and
found objects from nature: seaglass, beach stones, driftwood
grapevines and blueberry twigs.
Frame constructed from old barn wood found on the eastern shore in Maryland.
Other elements include metal mesh fabric, skeleton leaves and some silk cocoons.
The nest (not my photography) is the center of all that is found in nature...
Every year, as a family we spend a week in Maine on the cusp of summer... before the crowds arrive. It's a wonderful, peaceful opportunity to search for natural treasures hiding in the marshes, beaches and woods.
Vintage fabric collage assemblage created on a quilted base...
Hand sewn vintage lace, fabric trim, silk flowers, beads, buttons, rusty embellishments, fabric mesh, metallic and silk fabrics and natural fibers... I did use my sewing machine a bit here and there... Lots of details and unique elements mixed together to achieve a whimsical montage of vintage appeal.
THANKS AND GRATITUDE!What a wonderful sense of community...I have met so many gifted artists thorough OWOH and discovered multitudes of creative blogs and inspiring creations! On top of that... how lucky am I...to have won amazing works of art from these very talented artists...
