Fabric and Paper Collage: "Intermezzo" and "Dance of the Daisies"...

Good morning. I hope that you're having a great day! Well, we are headed up the Birdsong, so I probably won't get a chance to post for the next several days.

Believe it or not, I did manage to get in some creative time on Sunday and Monday. I played around with a product that I had never used before. It did not amount to any "creations", but it was fun getting my hands dirty! When I get home I will see where it takes me. More on that in another post.

Lately, I do not seem to have much time for artful creations, so I decided to do some fabric and paper collage using a minimal amount of elements. I thought it would be fun to see see what I could come up with in a short space of time. 

I have had this old photo for quite awhile.
I printed it out onto computer printer fabric,
and collaged it with scraps of
vintage sheet music and fabrics.
I added some pieces of old lace,
along with foreign postage stamps that were on one
of my eBay packages.
I used my sewing machine to sew it onto a backing
of cotton duck cloth...

I placed it in this old frame, using it as a prop.
I kind of like the way it looks,
but am not yet sure what I will do with this piece.
Actually, the frame doesn't look half bad...

I have had this old daisy plate for a long time.
I actually used it as a drip plate under flower pots.
Then I recently purchased this old sheet music,
and then the old photo of the little girl with the daisies
in her hair.
I couldn't resist making this simple little piece!

Sometimes it's so much fun to just make something without a lot of planning, isn't it? Thanks for spending this time with me!


  1. Being able to create without pressure and just for the fun of "let's see what will happen" is some of the best! I love the frame with the works perfectly. And what a clever use for the daisy both pieces!
