A nice day . . .

Binding . . .

Slightly larger than 5 x 7 collage using several black and white vintage images, reprinted, trimmed, and hand-colored and arranged with wings and crown from lisasalteredart.etsy.com, and watercolored scraps on a watercolored background.


Despite a few little mishaps and unplanned interferences, I had a really nice bday. I heard from all the people I love the most and my family did the best they could to make me feel special. Thanks to all for all the good wishes!

Here is a close up of the pieces I used for the collage pictured above . . .

I hope you had a wonderful birthday!...I just missed it by a few hours.. wait..as I write... it's still Sunday in California.. I haven't missed it! yay!
I would love to make you a sign like the "Mangia" sign .. just let me know what you'd like it to say. I just don't have another frame like the one I used. I do have a wood plaque about the same length.. and and a little taller.
so let me know what you think and I can work on it.
have a great week!

Happpity belated birthday Ms. Tumble Fish! Hope you had a fantabulous celebration with multiple flavors of ice cream involved...Do you know there are some people who..*gasp* do not consider ice cream an essential birthday ingredient? *double gasp*
Your collage is really cool. It makes me think of water, or being underwater. Very swimmy and nice.
