I found these two wood Easter plaques at Goodwill, but they had come from Target’s Dollar spot.
I like the using ‘box type’ design for making collages. The sides of these were already colors and designs that I liked and could work with!
I had some pretty new paper napkins with bird eggs on them that I was itchin’ to play with, so I decided on a bird theme for these two plaques.
A few layers of book pages, then the napkin, then a couple more book pages cut into ‘fancy shapes’, then a rectangle from a Chinese magazine and a bird illustration from a bird book. A quote from a book and of COURSE, a crown!
What do you think of my new photo backdrop?
With all the warm and dry weather we’ve been having I got a few ‘personal’ painting projects done. One of which was this shelf and the table it sits on. This ‘shelf’ is actually 1/2 of an old coffee table that was once a display shelf in my booth at Stars.
These are the pictures from ‘back when’ I used them as display shelves in my booth. I’m now using the half coffee table as a shelf atop halr of a dining table that is in my ‘office’ (which should be the dining room!)
The lamp has always been in this spot. I bought it to go with this collection of similarly shaped bottles; which used to be on a shelf in my living room. I had hoped to figure out a way to display them all together in the living room; but I just couldn’t make it work. So I settled for this set up; which I like just fine.
And the second collage; styled fairly similarly to the first one.
I extended the napkins over the edges, and they are sheer enough that the original side color and design show through.
This is really my FAVORITE part of them! hehe
Since the pieces were rectangular in shape, I oriented them in different directions.
They are available for purchase in my booth at Stars.
