Hello friends, I thought I would share another collage I made for the show. The show isn't until the 16th of April. Which is a good thing as I am still very sick! Mother's day will be here before we know it, so I thought I would make a few collages pertaining to Mother and child. I have a soft spot for mother and child images. I can't remember where I found this picture. But I thought it went perfectly with the soft gray color in the fabric and lace.
I put the word "blessed" on the collage, because I'm sure that is what this mother is feeling as her daughter is reaching up as if to give her a kiss. I know I would.
Heart-shaped mother-of-pearl buttons that have a soft gray hue.
There are sequins and rhinestones placed throughout.

This rhinestone and pearl brooch is just beautiful. I attached it to the black clip.
This is the back of the collage. Do you recognize this fabric? It's another piece from Liz at Lululiz at Lalaland. It's my last piece, Liz! Just kidding. I ordered some more from her! I just love it. She got it from France and brought it to her house in England and then sent to my house. It's been around! If fabric could talk! This collage has a book cover on the inside of it. So it's quite stiff. Double click on the photo so you can see close up on the fabric.
Thank you for visiting. I would love to hear what you are working on right now. Or even if you're not! ;)

Have a blessed weekend. I hope all of you are well.

Blessings and hugs,

Oh my goodness, Sonya, the collage is just gorgeous! It is a real thrill for me to see the fabric, which I had haggled over in France and hoarded for ages in England, made into such a wonderful piece. All the fabulous embellishments which you have used go so well with the fabric, I just adore this collage.
