Tea Party

Collage inspired by Bryn's love for Alice in Wonderland. At first I framed it for her room but I like it better without a frame. The original will still be displayed in her room but I've decided to also make personal stationary for her out of the image. Some of the images I have been saving for years in an envelope waiting for the right time to use them.

While I'm talking about my envelope of saved pictures I must confess my deep love for cutting up magazines because of all the secret hidden treasures inside. Especially magazines that have been piling up for long periods of time and this even includes publications like Costco Connection. Who knows what cool font or quirky picture they may have used. It is one of the most calming and satisfying things for me to do in the evening after a long day. Inspect each magazine thoroughly for potential good finds. Then and only then can the magazines be officially recycled.

Incredible collage.
I love cutting up mags too. That keeps me saving too much paper for too long, but I can't get myself to part with it until every little bit is gone through, cut, saved...
I found you at Hula Seventy. Of course I have to come visit someone with such a cool name!
