So, I had the great pleasure of meeting and talking with Ania Dąbrowska aka Finnabair. She is as brilliant and kind as she is beautiful.
My friend Lin Brown from the UK was lucky enough to take one of her classes and told me I had to try her wonderful techniques....long story short....this is my attempt at a Finnabair Collage.
(You MUST visit Lin's blog and see what fabulous pieces she made in Ania's class)
It was a real treat to dig out old hoarded treasures from the past to randomly cut and glue to this hanging plaque I got for a song at HL a long time ago.
I used the new Tissue Wrap Melange Tim sent me as the base...how could you go wrong starting with such a gorgeous base???
The little girls are on a clay button I made years ago. The image is from JVO's Collections.
There's a real snap, the innards of a watch, a Vintaj piece and a button with a crown all sprayed and layered with Multi-Medium.
This gold frame was perfect to go around a piece of paper with at 7 on it, and a metal embellishment.
The little bits of computer pieces are here and there.
7Gypsies gaffer tape and a Vintaj butterfly.
This is a Jenny Bowlin button, I think....not positive...and some metal piece from long ago on top.
I love the Mini Lightbulb I just got from Time Pieces.
The computer glass fit perfectly into the Spocket Gear.
Sadly the mica sparkle doesn't show up well in the pictures...but you get the idea.
The nylon netting created a cool affect under the butterfly.
I added a few stamps here and there to fill up space under the trims that were glued on and sprayed.
The flower has a Grungepaper and Metal Foil base that was embossed. It gathered some of the spray as well.
This is by no means anything near what Lin or Ania created, but it was a fun project, and that's all that matters!
Tonight we had a great Birthday Dinner with my son Jeff and his family. This is his oldest Erin.(she's 11!)
The food color dye is slowly coming out...I think we're doing Blueberry next time!
Have a great week.
