Little Miss Collage

I'm still waiting on my replacement frames, so I've been working a lot in the Studio. I can see well close up, but not far maybe it's a good thing for a bit?

Anyway, this is a quick little project that I had fun making last night. It's on a 3 1/4 inch square piece of black mat board.

These stamps from Prima are perfect for small collages and cards. The paper is from the gorgeous paper pad Sunrise Sunset from Finnabair/Prima. I LOVE the warm colors on these papers.

I glued a corner section of the paper to the mat board, added some Distress Inks on the edges and used the Flowers stencil in one section. Then I stamped with coffee Archival Ink using the 3 stamp sets.

I sprayed a bit of Copper Perfect Pearl Mist on the piece and added black pen marks.

Then I glued on the little Lady.

I used various paints and sprays to add color to the Prima embellishments and glued them into place. I think she looks to be about 3 years old, hence the 3.

The Cut Out Collage Word and the black chipboard heart tell the story in one word.

Here you can see the Perfect Pearls shimmering on the background.
