The first is a rak from a friend, Joan, in one of my online groups. The wing of the butterfly is detached - so cute! This springtime collage is 5 1/2" by 8 1/2" and hangs with a beautiful piece of green/gold lace (which you can't see in the photo). What a wonderful surprise!
The following two collages arrived by "royal post" all the way from Scotland. Back in February there was an online blogging event called OWOH (One World One Heart) in which more than 200 bloggers participated by giving away prizes on their blogs, randomly chosen from those who visited and commented. I was notified awhile ago that I had won one of Gillian's collages on www.scrappy-doo-gilliam.blogspot.com. Since she was giving away three in all, I didn't know which one I would receive, but I loved all of them. Today I received not one, but two collages, both of which I am tickled to have!
This first one is a 5" square framed rusty metal screen which has been painted various colors and lots of goodies added. I just love the wording "I love rusty, chipped, faded, peeling, frayed, faded things.
I have no idea why I received two, but I wouldn't part with either! This one is a 5" by 7" canvas with many layers of paint, fabrics (?) and beads, glitter and even dried lichen. This photo doesn't do it justice - it was hard to get a good photo showing all the glitz and shine. Isn't that little girl so sweet? Thank you Gillian! Be sure to check out her blog - she does some amazing work. Yes, it was a very good mail day.
