LATEST GRUNGE WORK

I have decided to return back to some original techniques, grunge... this original mixed media collage, titled "TIDY" is made with a very antique book cover, the lady is an original page from a book. The antique doily and vintage lace is grunged with coffee, the vintage biege and pink lace is embellished with pink glitter. There is also a vintage pink button. The word "TIDY" is on the dictionary page along with cutouts of a butterfly and roses from greeting cards. This item is an original and will not be duplicated, it is also signed by me and dated. The collage comes with a stand for display. Or if you care to, you can drill some holes for hanging on the wall, I will let you handle that!! When Minyele and I opened up our Nook & Cranny gift shop here on the island, we were themed; antique, grunge, old, primitive and such with our crafted items. Some how, some time along we moved away from that theme, not sure why or what happened. This style of crafting is my first love, anything old, tattered and worn. So, I'm back!! Oh and I love antique cloths pins, too.... go figure!!! Look for more of the same soon. Visit our etsy shop www.nookcrannygifts.etsy.com for this item. Visit our craft supply shop for items for your own crafts, vintage ephemera, antique paper, lace, trim and much more; www.aclosetoftreasures.etsy.com Thanks for stopping by.
