Collage work dates right back to the late 1800's when Victorians saved pictures, cards and drawings to enhance their rooms and homes ... Most, everything was created by hand .
Use a cereal box or water color paper
Cut into 2.5 x 3.5 pieces or cards
Find some magazine pictures or card images that you like
Gather some ribbons, feathers or other odds and ends of pretty papers
Recycle, recycle, recycle your broken beads.
Arrange your treasures on the card.
Add a little glue and a little glitter.
Apply some words with a ink stamp.
You can be as creative as you want.
It's easy , its fun and it's Victorian. If you have any questions or comments don't hesitate to ask or to jot them down for me... after all ladies ... What are friends for ? Hmmmmmmmmm .
