I posted this in recon paper crafts because I have rules for myself about collage...I always use second-hand materials. I aim for items that are free, but thrifted things and used books are ok too. I like it when the parts had a life somewhere else before they make up a new piece.

I made this for a friend of mine who is bipolar and is currently struggling with depression. I'm hoping it will give her encouragement, or at least make her smile on a dreary day. The larger words come from a really cheesy poem based on 1 Corinthians 13. The teeny words are the text of that verse from a pocket-sized Gideon Bible that my kids ripped the cover off of, so now I use it in lots of my collages. The frames were thrifted, and the pictures come from a used book about caring for exotic goldfish.









The words are hard to read in Craftster's photo uploader, so if you want to see more detail there are larger photos on my blog http://dreamsintodeeds.wordpress.com/2010/01/03/love-is/. It's not a very crafty blog...yet. Most of the posts are about the intentional community I live in. I hope to add some of my other collage and sculpture projects soon, both there and here.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks, Sunflower! I gave them to my friend today, she's going to hang them near her aquarium.
