I had so much fun with this challenge. I found so much stuff taking my son places - the playground, a back-to-school luau party - and its all mounted on a 12 x 12 piece of cardboard that comes in a pack of scrapbook pages to keep them from getting bent. You'll notice a palm tree drink stirrer thing, some slik flower petals, a little yellow bow bead and some kind of purple plastic thing with an arrow. The latter 2 were found on a playground. The palm tree and flowers were rescued from the trash at the party. There are also 2 piece of ribbon that I found in a parking lot. The pink tissue paper background was found at the playground - remnant of a birthday party.

This is a piece of paper I found on the playground - I think its from one of those streamer-popper things.

This is a torn piece of a gateway cow box. I work in an IT department. I found this in our parking lot. It apparently tore off of a box when we were unloading a truck but it was in this exact shape. I did not modify it at all!

For approximately 10 years, I haved saved nearly every fortune out of every fortune cookie I have eaten. I never knew what to do with them until now. It seemed fitting to me.

Thanks for looking. This was my first attempt at collage and I really had a good time!

once I was eating Chinese with an ex-bf and his family.... and when we got to the end of the meal, everyone had a fortune in their cookies, except my then-bf and me.  (I think it was a sign!)

This was a good challenge.. lots of different results coming out of it.  The story of where the objects in your collage came from makes it really cute.  Smiley

Now accepting orders for custom handmade books.. treat yourself to a new handbound journal or sketchbook! 
PM me for details.

etsy shop coming soon!
