So, I saw a post by Knickertwist about her beautiful little frames that she made and abandoned...I also started following the group on facebook...I love seeing everyone's beautiful stuff on there...Well, it's certainly inspired me to make more stuff...I am my own worst critic and don't think my stuff is GREAT, but I've not done collages in a while...I love doing them, but sometimes I get stuck...

Well, I love the images of women + wings, so I decided to go with that theme....I used a small 4x6 frame I had in my stash that was from the dollar store. I covered the frame in glitter tape, used an old dictionary page set at an angle for the background. I then (after a lengthy search) found a lady that I liked online... I found one of the cute little butterfly dimensional stickers I had in my stash and used foam tape to make the lady the same height as the butterfly...I originally stamped a crown over her head, but I hated it. So I found one that I had printed out earlier and added purple rhinestones and foam tape to raise it up...I used vintage rhinestones for the buttons of her dress..They're not flatback style, so they don't lie flat but I like the dimension.

I'm not a huge fan of the "Smile" part, but I'm leaving it because it isn't for me. It's for the art abandonment group...I'll drop it off somewhere tomorrow when I go out with my friends.

Please let me know what you think...I can take constructive criticism! Cheesy

I saw this on the fb page. It's fab! I especially like how the crown sort of hovers over her head. Lovely, lovely work Smiley

Thank you, that means a lot! I'm trying to make stuff every day and use just my stash, but it's hard cause I always think of stuff I want to buy to help me! haha...I have already dropped off like 5 packages of little art stuff I made..I keep seeing the butterflies pop up in my art, almost unintentionally..Guess I love them a lot, lol.   Grin

Lovely! I love the idea of leaving work out there for people to find!
