Collage Art

I have collected quite a stash of vintage lace and findings - I can't help it - it's a sickness. S-o-o-o, I decided to get busy using them in collages and other art pieces. Here is one I just finished. It was very difficult to photograph, I took maybe 50 shots and still can't quite get it right. Even with the newest easy-to-use cameras, my photographic skills are lacking.... I picked the better pics to show you.  It is listed it in my etsy shop.

hey Melissa, I think you did a great job with the photography and it's very pretty. My project/to do list is getting pretty overwhelming. Sometimes I get so frustrated that I can't do things as quickly as I would like. :)

What a sweet sweet image of the little girl holding a nest. Your collage is stunning. That would take me awhile to try something like that. I'd be playing with the placement of lace forever. You've pulled it off so beautifully Melissa. ~ Abby

Hi Melissa
That sickness is obviously catching as I have the same illness LOL. It is difficult for me to source lace in my town but through lovely friends and E-bay I am beginning to build a stash but the downside, I don't want to use it, I want to keep the lace to look at, even when it isn't vintage, it is still so lovely!!!
Anyway, you were so right to go ahead and dip into your stash as this is just so beautiful.
Wishes
Lynne
