4x4 for Lisa B - recycled garden goodness

I belong to a yahoo group where we are creating 4x4's for each other this year . . . yes, only 4 inches by 4 inches, not very big at all. I've made a couple of already as we started in June and you can see them here (including this post, scroll down). My creative friend Frieda has shared the 4x4's she's made on her blog (we're in the group together) and the most recent one Frieda made was for me. I cherish it. You can view it here, ooh la la!
The 4x4 featured in this post is for Lisa Busch, owner of Collage Stuff. For inspiration, I started with a postcard she made and sent with one of my orders! You can view Lisa's original postcard here.

I used a sheer patterned fabric over her postcard.

I folded the extra to the back & machine stitched!

I added a piece of Lisa's postcard over the fabric on the front of the 4x4.
Then I got out White Prima 'craftable' flowers out and started playing.

I had gotten these flowers from Lisa not too long ago . . . plus the crinkle wire
I'm wrapping around the flowers and the little gold stars. How much fun! 

I worked on the back, also using Collage Stuff items.

Even though Lisa gave us 'artist choice' as her theme, she noted she likes children and gardens and I am sure it's fun to see some of the products she carries being used too! Check out Collage Stuff - great items for collage and mixed media art, I love shopping there! Thanks to Frieda who mentioned Lisa's business in a post ; ^ )
