Glimpses: Completing some art projects!

Hello to all! I hope that you're having a great day.

This year we will be having a very quiet Christmas, so I decided to take advantage of that with minimal decorating, and spent these last couple of days completing a few art projects that I had started last month. Here are a few glimpses of what I worked on, though I can't yet share more than this.

I actually worked on four related seasonal collage canvases.
I used some of the stuff I've been collecting for a while,
ribbon, fibers, a vintage key and label holder, and
some old sheet music...

...not to mention the usual vintage photo thrown in.
I love the mom and baby in her coat and hat sitting
on the porch on this cold winter day.

More pretty fibers, old glass buttons,
and a glimpse of another old photo and
a vintage typed letter...

Here are some vintage postage stamps
on top of old ledger paper,
with yet another photo barely peeking

 Yet another photo, this one on top
of a vintage love letter and its envelope.
This letter was actually sent many years ago
to someone one town over from where I live.
And of course, some velvet ribbon and lace...

At some point I will show you the completed versions of these.


Maybe I would be better off creating some Christmas cards this week.
