To have more, desire less

I was in the mood to create something Red. I have been working with a lot of Green, purple and blue lately.
so I decided to spice things up with a little red. For this 4 x 6 mixed media collage, I cut up an old collage that I had made and used it for the boarder. I fussy cut out a vintage bird , added a quote, and a couple of other embellishments, and called it Good. I am happy with the way this little collage turned out.

Dragonfly Collage

Yesterday I went to JoAnn Fabrics & Crafts, and bought some Crackle medium and some mirrored Dragonfly's. I knew that I wanted to make a 4 x 6 mixed media project with these 2 items. I have never used crackle medium before and wanted to try it. I wanted the background of my collage to be crackled. I tried it on this project and LOVE the effect. Perfect for a background. Then I took an old collage that I had made and did not like so much and cut it up into 1/2 inch strops to be the border for my collage. I Mod Podged a couple of dragonfly, and a flower embellishment to my background then added the mirrored dragonfly at the top of my collage. I am very HAPPY with the way this project turned out. :)

Altered Cigar Box

I went to our local Antique Shop here in Lennox yesterday. I bought a 1959 El Roi-Tan Cigar box. I knew for sure that I wanted to alter that box. I took the box apart, and used the cover of the box to make a Junk Journal. So much fun for me. I made this box into 52 pages of Journaling Goodness. I am happy with the way the box turned out. This will be a gift for a friend.
