Western Themed Fabric Collage

This is a first attempt at breaking out of my comfort zone and creating a Western themed fabric collage.  I fell in love with this image, which came from Jamie at Art-e-ology, who posts a free image on Tuesdays (FIT).  Thanks for stopping by my nest and have a wonderful day!

Take Care - Robin

Hi Robin,
Great job on your western themed collage. I love the image you used. The western type is out of my comfort zone too. I am in the midst of making a western themed collage for a sister of mine (her birthday present)and it has been hard for me. But I've enjoyed the challenge. I will post it when I'm finished so you can see how it turns out. ;}
Have a wonderful day and thanks for sharing.

Hugs,
Sonya

Robin, turn-of-the-century western is always so cool! Love this photo and what you've done with it. I wonder if she was a "mail order bride" or someone who went west with family?
