Craft Thursday

Craft day got postponed this week due to events I blogged about earlier. When the dust settled, here's what I ended up with..................................................... It's my first stab at paper/collage art in a while. I've been collecting all kinds of bits and bots so now it's just a matter of putting them together in a fun way. I especially loved that polka-dot ribbon when I found it and couldn't wait to find a use for it. The baby is a long lost distant cousin. It's a picture among several old ones that my grandmother had saved. The back of it says, "To Aunt Leigh and Uncle Hugh, J.D. Hutchins, Age 7mo, 17 days , July11, 1908." His Aunt Leigh was my great-grandmother and her wedding pictures are in the stash I found. Can't wait to use them.......maybe this June.
This is just step one for the little guy. He's either going to end up in a shadow box or part of some other construction. I'm just waiting for lightning to strike and get my brain going.

I wish I had the patience to work with decopage like I once did. I admire Penny (at Lavender Hill) so much. She does mosaics that are too beautiful for words...

Thank you so much for visiting Gatherings. It was so nice of you to stop by. I have been perusing your blog and it is a feast for the eyes. I see we have very similar tastes. I really enjoy collage work also, but right now do not have much time to persue it. Could you see the eclipse last night? It was too cloudy here to see it but for just a few seconds.
Please come and visit again.

Blessings,
Tonja
