hmmm...

You know when you are creating something, and you are pleased...but something just doesn't feel right?
Come on, it can't be just me...
I was making this collage, and I was happy with the outcome...
When I selected the flowers, I didn't know if they would be the right choice, but down they went...nagging at me still....and off they came...Tacky glue is some, strong glue, wow!  So after I pried it off, I saw some vintage trim, so I rolled a rosette...perfect!  Is there more, ripped apart some drawers of trim and lace, and no more...poo~
Then I remembered some old button covers (I guess) I had, and used those.
So all in all, I am happy with it.
The beginning is kinda funny as well, when I was making my background on these canvas', I used cheesecloth for texture...BAD IDEA...It was to rough to paint on, and paper didn't want to stick to it, so I had to use it in a collage.  Oh well...

  1. I liked the pink flowers too - but I like how you changed it up and how you felt it was more "what it was meant to be". And yes, I go through that -- I think we all do. At least you persevered until you reached "the end". When this happens to me quite often (read too often) I put it aside and pull a "Scarlet" telling myself I'll deal with it later...and later never comes!! xo
