The green one is for Karen who gave us the theme "artist's choice" but let us know she liked birds and nature, among other things! I concentrated on those two.

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.|

We each choose a theme that everyone in the group bases the piece they create (for you) on, and Leslie's theme is Wings. I recently put a small order in at Alpha Stamps as I was tempted by their selection of beautiful papers. Lots of bird things. I started by taking the Reverie Bird paper which is a large scrapbook size and copying it onto sheer ink jet vellum paper because I wanted a soft, sheer look. If it looks familiar, you saw me use a bit of the actual scrapbook paper in my fragile art journal spread a couple of days ago... here it is copied onto the vellum and placed on a 4x4 piece of watercolor paper -
There is plenty of room left and the collages are not due until April 24, if you would like to join us . . .
