Delicate Collages

Well as I was pulling out some of my Spring colored
fabrics and vintage laces like these

(some beautiful silk chiffons)


I thought of creating a couple of new collages using these
images of sweet vintage children


  I love these images for their simple beauty
I turned them into these.



 It didn't quite all happen with the wave of a wand
but I become so engrossed in the making 
that I never noticed
where the hours went!



It's just about building layers like we do with our lives
and hopefully they end up creating harmony.
If you think these collages could bring harmony
into your lives then you may find them
in my Etsy shop
Linking this collage above to What's it Wednesday
at Ivy and Elephants blog with Paula so take a look there
at all the other lovely links too! 

Thanks for your wonderful visits  -  always!

  1. Lovely makes as always Suzie! xxx
    Looking at the elements used, I realised I have a few bits in my stash the same patterns and lace! Maybe one day I'll get around to using them!

  2. Dear Suzi, your work is just mind blowing,... and these 2 sweet collages are stunning in there colour aray and how you complement the images with your talent and knowledge of drawing out the colours from those images. Wow just stunning.

  3. These are lovely. My favorite is 'Sweet & Kind'. The young girl's look, the colors of lace and fabric, beautiful.

    You definitely have a gift for putting all of these bits and pieces together.

    Happy Creating ~ FlowerLady

  4. Suzy, it is always a feast for the eyes when I visit you. These are sweet perfection!
    hugs and JOY,

  5. Just beautiful, Suzy. I love the softness of the fabrics and laces - match those little sweeties perfectly.

    Happy crafting!

  6. Hi Suzy, just stunning work with your gorgeous details and the darling graphics. You are so gifted and you always create special treasures.
    Happy June!

  7. Sweetness at it's best. The images are adorable and the lovely layers of all the fun laces and fabric are luscious. Have a sweet day. Thanks for sharing.

  8. I can tell, that hours just flew ,creating these two so beautiful collages, dear Suzy. So many materials of lovely kinds, are used in both, and so much has to be tried and placed, for satisfaction. They are so sweetly filled with summer, and beautiful childhood, and the colourtones and adds, are all so wonderful pulled together.
    I wish you a wonderful and happy day, my dear friend.
    Hugs and kiss, from Dorthe

  9. Oh Suzy! These are too beautiful to put into words. What a harmony of things you have put together to create this symphony my dear. I have missed too many beautiful posts here and went back to see all I had missed and was amazed, again, at the way you create beauty! I could look at these all day long!
    I hope you are well my dearest. I know you are going soon into your winter and by now most of your garden is winding down and now it is time to rest from your care of it. I spend such long days in the garden working that it seems I have time for little else but that, and caring for Landon (which is the joy of my life). So, in short, I am loving life here in Idaho. I think of you so often when I'm working among the roses.
    sending much love to you!

  10. Such sweet little images to build upon (hmmm....wonder why they don't seem to have such sweet images of little boys?). I really don't know how you can give your creations up and sell them....If they were mine I would want to keep them ALL!!

  11. You can always take a bit of lace and fabric and make a beautiful work of art. I'm always inspired when I visit you! Sweet hugs, Diane

  12. Gosh I think these little girls are my favorite thing you make -- mine that you gave me a few years ago is hanging in my powder room! I love the soft colors on these.

  13. So sumptuous! So many layers to sift through. Great vintage images. xox

  14. Suzy
    what a treat to see these breath taking collages! I always love coming here because you are such an inspiration to so many! Just beautiful! I hope you are enjoying your weekend.


  15. As always simply gorgeous, my dear Suzy:) Have a lovely Sunday.
    Hugs and love,


Thank you so very much for stopping here to say hello and to see what I have been creating. I really treasure each and everyone of you for your comments. It is so appreciated....Suzy
