Lovely weather again here - it's still very cold and windy, but sunny,
and that always makes me feel better.
I have a hybrid piece today. Lovely Linda is the new hostess,
and has chosen the theme of 'Fifty shades of red'.
I have used one of 'my' heads, filled with a collage of ladies in red
on a mixed media background. The feathers and flower are from
Mischief Circus. I was thinking of Chris de Burgh
and his song 'lady in red':
And here I have a mixed media tag made from a heap of disparate
bits and bobs. The face is from Lost Coast, and was stamped on an
old letter and then collaged. I added some random stamping
and did lots of sewing. The background was made from an
Amazon shipping envelope, partly peeled, embossed and painted.
This was my start up 'heap'. The bits and pieces of book pages, letters,
old passports and found things, like the feathers, remind
me of what is left over when people die and their
houses get cleared. Most of the old family papers I have
were dug out of dustbins after their owners had died,
some go back to 1700, and I will never understand
why people race to get 'useful' or 'valuable' things, but throw away their heritage
without a second thought.
I am also linking to Go Tag Thursday, anything goes,
and altered eclectics, also anything goes
I love the wintry scrub hanging over the fences:
But I didn't like the slippery paths:
And although it is still very cold, I saw the first signs of spring:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot or coming by!
