Some New Collages

It has been really hot here this week, been staying in so I finished a couple of new pieces.
This one has a western theme.   I used a lot of different old fabrics on it. 

I love old books, so on this one I used covers of three different books.  The picture is of my Great Aunt Belle.  I spent many happy days with her as a child so really enjoyed using her photo.

Both of these are going in the Etsy Shop. 

Hugs, Jackie

Love your beautiful works. It needs to stay hot outside for awhile, it aids your "creativeness"~LOL. Always a pleasure to see what God does thru your talented hands. Tiffany

Hi Jackie - thank you for your very kind words re Cherie! I love your work her especially of your aunt Bella. You have embellished her photo perfectly - the textural look is complemented with the old book covers!
You must have a lovely collection of fabrics and laces.
Love and hugs,
