This mixed media art collage features a vintage photo of a little girl with birds on a lavender background embellished with fabric and fiber.

This collage is presented on a 6 x 6 inch (15 x 15 cm) canvas. A vintage photo of a lovely little girl is set against a collage of tissue paper, paint, tulle, fabric and rick-rack trim in pretty hues of aqua and lavender. Her hair is embellished with a vintage brass bow, and she is surrounded by ethereal embellishments of glitter, flatback Swarovski crystals and tiny mirrored pieces. The edges of the canvas are embellished with vintage fabric, metal brads,metallic trim and a resin bead set with a Swarovski crystal.

"And so here she would remain..." Who is this little girl? I have no idea - I found her among many photos at an estate sale. I do not know whether the actual person is alive or gone - but as a memory, in this photo, and perhaps still to those who knew her, she remains. In a sense she is all of us - the little child that never really vanishes, that lives on in our dreams and fears and memories - shimmering in the glittery aura of the past. I like to think that this collage pays her homage, whoever she is, and preserves her precious childhood. And so here she shall remain.

This canvas is sturdy enough to stand on it's own (it measures 1 and 1/2 inches deep) or it looks great on a tabletop easel. A hook is secured to the back for hanging.

Made with CRYSTALLIZED™ - Swarovski Elements
