I've been busy creating just for my sake - I am giving myself til the first and then it is back to the norm.
This clipboard is called "Great Expectations" (gee - imagine that)...the quote says: "I took her hand in mine, and we went out of the ruined place; and, as the morning mists had risen long ago when I first left the forge, so, the evening mists were rising now, and in all the broad expanse of tranquil light they showed to me, I saw no shadow of another parting from her."
The photos are sweet - all featuring flowers. I love the one on the top right - it has an old shed and hollyhocks and a little girl - reminds me of my maternal great-grandmother's place - the old 'garage' and the hollyhocks.
The lower-left has a image of a seventeen year cicada. The mirror came out of an old accessories suitcase (I bought at Goodwill recently) - it was one that had elastic straps to hold a mirror (which had no frame on it).
This clipboard is called Doll - the middle photo had the name Doll scribbled on the top. The top photo is humorous to me - the images in the wall are apparently old fashion images (say Godey's or something).
I ripped a definition of Doll into the collage - the definition reads: "a toy in human form"
I love the background on this one - it is painted lace - I painted the clipboard and then laid the lace on it and painted it down in several colors and then pulled the lace off.
I am very happy with this one in spite of the mishap - I accidently spilled half a bottle of glue on it. I used a wet sponge brush and sponged, and sponged, and sponged away. The tea bag says "Fortune favors the brave" I have an old book lining with some quotes on it that I want to slip into the library card pouch when it dries.
These silhouettes of the girls are for my MIL for Mother's Day. I had fun with them. I love the frames - I would have not distressed them except one of them had some sort of green oxidation going on so I painted and sanded...(thrift store frames - what else do you do?)
BTW anybody want a clipboard? I will trade you for something - (I would love dozens and dozens of cardboard egg cartons (I am in the midst of a massive paper mache project) and I can always do clip boards or beads or...let me know...
I am also willing to give away - Intelligent Design or I'll Fly Away which you can see here: Design - is the big Sun and Fly Away has a big musical bird.
Wendy has snagged 'I'll Fly Away; and Christine has requested 'Great Expectations'
