A mixed media art collage featuring a vintage photo of a woman embellished with lace, a beautiful bird, and other ephemera, all in a pastel palette.

The focal point of this collage is an original vintage photo still in its original (slightly rusty) tin frame. The photo itself has been embellished with Swarovski crystals, fine glitter and stamping to enhance the subject's 'queenliness'.

The photo is framed by vintage lace, which, along with the canvas, has been altered with vintage dictionary pages, several layers of acrylic paint, hand-rubbed ink, and stamping.

A quote from Cesare Pavese "The richness of life lies in memories we have forgotten" is fitting I think, since this photo was found amidst a forgotten stash of photos at an estate sale. Who knows whose memories this lovely lady has enriched over the years?

Among the embellishments are velvet and silk leaves, velvet ribbon, linen thread, lace trim, a corner of a beautiful vintage hankie, and a chipboard birdie.

The collage is done on an 8 by 10 inch canvas. A hook is attached on the back for hanging.

Made with CRYSTALLIZED™ - Swarovski Elements
