Fabric Collage


This is another fabric collage I created that is roughly 14" x 16".  The picture is printed on matte photo paper and is of my Mother-In-Law, Alice.  She is just 4 years old here, but turned 90 earlier this year.  Isn't she just adorable?  Thanks for stopping by my nest and have a great day!

Take Care - Robin

This couldn't be any cuter. Everything is just perfect from the fringe to the photo corners to the red flowers. Fantastic work, Robin!

That is the cutest girl! I love the colors, the textures, the doily..all of it! On the tassel fringe - I got some but after I cut it, it started unralveling..I lost about 4 inches before I knew it! How do you avert this from hapening?

Another fabulous collage, Robin. Lovely photo and the lace piece (doily?) that you've layered her on to is just right. Love the colours and the flowers, butterflies and fringing.

Robin, this could have been created in the Victorian era. Again, it's exquisite. I love the rich colors you always use. Mixed with the creams and taupes - even richer.
