I could never in a million years make a DENT in the pile-o-goods Annie sent me!
There must be a million papers and bits and scraps of everything in that box! Not only that she sent 2 lovely matted photographs she had taken as well as sending 2 books. One of them is an all time favorite of mine which I have 2 copies of already..."Art and Fear." A must have for every creative type! I'll pass this copy on to Debra Kay, idea Queen for this challenge ;)
This is just a small collage done with part of a vintage photograph Annie sent. I loved the stationary she wrote on so I used it for my background. This young womans face resonated with me as well as the number 8 that shows slightly behind her. That's my birth month as well as a very powerful number. I then tore part of a napkin for the trees and buildings and a sliver of a red and gold shimmery napkin to edge her in more. The stamps are from my stash because they looked so good with her! And then I looked for a phrase that would tie it all together. I finished it off by feeling this young woman was talking about 'home' so I cut a small piece of crossword squares to write her destination on.
This was fun! I managed to do this while waiting for my Amy's Organic spinach and cheese pizza to cook ;P
Thank you Annie for the millions of goodies, and thanks Deb for arranging a fun event!
