A few weeks ago I posted this pair of vintage book cover collages I made recently - but they were shown in low saturation so I could post in Simply Neutrals Tuesday. Cheating, really, I guess, but they did look interesting in those muted shades. Today I'm showing you their real colours...
I loved the texture of the old spine, so I used it on one side of the tree, which was too beautiful to cover. This moth is exquisite. I intensified the colours in photoshop. It looks real!
Pink seam binding ribbon was used for the hanger, after hammering holes at the top using a hole punch.
I found the skeleton leaf on a walk through the bush near our home.
The picture was printed on a canvas-textured paper.
What serendipity! The reddish stain on the lace matched the handmade paper framing it.
Since these collages recycle old lace scraps and book covers, I am joining the Share it One More Time Party
