Mind Wide Open~July Challenge

This month's word prompt for July's Mind Wide Open challenge was BLISS and this is the image that Gail provided.
I found this poem by William Wordsmith and thought it perfect for the image:


I started with anaglypta wallpaper adhered to heavy duty cardboard, then painted and antiqued it. On top of that I glued on vintage sheet music that I stamped to add more texture..layered over that is the image Gail provide.  I printed the poem right on the image.

Finished it all off with old lace and buttons and a vintage earring. It hangs by black velvet ribbon..
Be sure to visit Mind Wide Open and vote for your favorite!!

  14. Hi Myrna,

    Lovely collage! :) Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. Since no one voted for my creation, little insecure me started to wonder what might be wrong with it. Thus your comment was VERY welcome. :) Anyway, yes, it's completely digital, even the 3D objects. That's why it takes hours to create a collage like that.

    Happy creating,
    Birgit
