A New Canvas Creation and the first sign of Christmas

I´ve been having fun with the lace again
and created a new collage.
This one is sewn onto a canvas
You can just see a bit of the canvas underneath
the layers on this photo

I think the canvas gives a great
dimension to the collage.

So I used different layers of lace
and an old doily
added a bit of creamy silk

some vintage buttons
and a sweet image on muslin in the middle 

quite pretty I think
and all ready to hang


The first sign of Christmas is here

I bought a few hyacinths today
removed the soil on one of them
and hope it will grow in this old jar

the rest of them were planted
in a little zinc bowl
and are now the first to see
when entering my frontdoor.

Thank you so much for visiting
and I hope you all will have a beautiful day

Tina ♥♥♥

Hello sweet Tina! I am always so happy to see a new post from you! I love to see what you are creating and doing all the way in Denmark, it makes you seem a little closer to Louisiana! :) Your lace creations are always so gorgeous! I love this collage! All of the whites are so pretty and the image is darling! I love how you used a canvas for the base! I just purchased some over the weekend to try and paint a portrait of some of the dolls that I make on to. I have them all sketched out, but we will see how the painting goes! :)

I agree, the canvas gives your collage great dimension! You are so creative! I love all the layers of lace. You can never have enough of lace! The silk, buttons and doily are beautiful too!

How wonderful you are seeing the first sign Christmas! I love hyacinths! Yours look so pretty in the old jar and zinc container! I can hardly wait to see them bloom! My Christmas cactuses are blooming! Thank you for sharing sweet friend! I enjoyed my visit!
Love and hugs, Paula… have a beautiful day too!
