~Best Friends~

 Hello again, my friends.  I made this 5.5 x 9 inch collage out of a book cover. I glued (with matte medium) french scripted tissue over the book cover, both sides. Then I painted with acrylic yellow ochre over the whole thing. I love the image of these two ladies. They look like they are having such a good time. They seemed to be wearing feathers in their hats so I had to apply the real thing!

 Best friends...I'm sure they are. Do you have a best friend? 
 I thought this brooch was unusual looking but pretty. Of course, more feathers!
Well, here it is! I  hope you like it. Double click and you can see it better.

What are you doing today? Any creating? I would love to hear from you.
Thank you for stopping by and for your comments too.

Dear Sonya- this is so beautiful----
image,flowers, wonderful ribbons, and the elegant brooch- and ofcourse they needed the feathers, the two sweet friends.
Love the pictures from your beach tour with your family--how bad you missed the wedding!
Happy week-end.
