Creating Collages - Layer Upon Layer

One of my most favourite things to do in my studio
is to pull out my baskets of tiny bits
of vintage lace and doilies
as well as little bits
of precious

too special to throw away
and create some of these little collaged beauties.


 Many of these tiny pre-rephaelite images
lend themselves to be adorned
with special silk fibres, textures
and vintage laces
with embellishments.


I was also able to incorporate 
some of my Logan berry died laces
I created a little while black 


along with some of my eco-dyed silks
which I often felt to give a soft gathered look and feel. 

 The textures work so well together when used like this!

More berry dyed doilies with sari ribbon,
mother of pearl buttons
and crushed velvet! 

 I listed these in my Etsy shop.
They have sold pretty fast, however, if you would like
to own one there are still a couple left.
So you can take a peek in my
if you like!!!

Thank you all so much for visiting and I wish you all a promising
week of creative love and inspiration!
