Vintage Lady Collage on Canvas

Sometimes it takes a while to get things finished...or framed.
This is one such case.
I created the flower elements and the the background a long time ago when I was working on the Cloth Paper Scissors donation piece for Breast Cancer Awareness.
But I never got around to framing it and taking some pictures.
The 8x8 canvas board piece is now in a shadow box frame and needs to be hung on the wall.
The Flowers are die cut from Crinoline and sprayed with Dylusions Inks.
The Flower centers are from Graphic 45, as well as the Lady in the die cut frames.
Perfect Pearls and Computer Parts create elements throughout with an Old and New flair.
I love her earring. I've also added color to the Lady with Tombow markers.

The fern leaves are from Vintaj.......
....and so is the Butterfly. I painted the Mini Gears with paints and sprays.

There is a doily underneath all the Golden Fluid acrylics, and the wings are black German Scrap.
I love painting on canvas with the Golden Fluids. The doily really stands out with the darker background painting.
I also added a piece of copper wire I coiled up and polished.

A few more gears and some real pearl buttons here and there and she's found a home.
I was lucky enough to find an 8x8 shadow box with glass to frame it in.
Thanks for stopping by.
