Re-doing an Old Piece....

Saturday I kind of re-worked one of my collages. This is what it looked like before....



I hadn't actually attached the piece of lace-like crochet along the side and I decided I didn't want to. Instead I did this....

I like it better. I toned down the writing stamp in the lower right corner and I added a small key with a tassle in that same area and a skeleton leaf with a browned rose in the upper left hand corner. I plan to get some velvet ribbon today in either a brown or the sage-y green and glue it around the outer edge. This is not a finished-edge canvas....it has staples so the ribbon will cover that. Plus I think the ribbon will add to the romantic feel of the overall piece.

  3. Love your make over...It's fun to look at something we did, somehow you get a different take. Really pretty.
    I did the Bloglandia in the middle of the night...I had so many missed spelled words, I had to delete it. So I no longer have your comment...sad! And you were so sweet too.
    Hope you are having a really good weekend.
