A Purse Collage and a Vacation coming up

Hi All

Remember the
'ad more colors to the creations'

Here´s another one
where I have tryed to incorporate some colors.
Still not that easy for me...

as always I used one of my vintage book covers as base
and added some layers of fabric, lace
and a beautiful fabric piece in golden and brown tones

some time ago I got my hands
an a little well worn coin purse
and though it was perfect for this collage.

here´s few close ups of the purse

I tugged in a sweet little german doll
along with some tea dyed cheesecloth

and here´s is how it turned out.
With more vintage lace pieces
and sweet vintage buttons

Vacation is coming up - yeaahh
I have the next two weeks off from work
and we have decided to take a little trip
to Sweden leaving this monday.

This is going to be so great.
It´s all about relaxation.
We haven´t planned a thing
just going to see what comes up
(I might be lucky to find a few 'loppis' though)
Fleamarkets you know ;-)

If you don´t 'see´me around the next week
you know why

Thank you so much for popping in today
and I wish you all the most beautiful weekend

Tina ♥♥♥

This is so sweet. I love the little vintage coin purse, so sweet. It's beautiful the way you have combined all of the elements.

Have fun on your "relaxation" trip.

Your creation is always great, I love it!.
I love your cheesecloth, may I know where did you purchase it? I wish to buy some too for my cardmaking. Thank you very much.

It's gorgeous, dear Tina! I love the charlotte doll in the coin purse which was a great find. I've never seen one here yet. I guess the purses get thrown away, especially when they have that wonderful used look. What a shame!
Enjoy your trip to Sweden! It's so lovely there.
Hugs to you,

What a wonderful collage. And funny that you are trying to incorporate more color in your work. I was just planning on getting rid of a lot of color in my craftroom :-)
Have a wonderful time in Sweden. I just returned from there (did a post on it today), so I can imagine perfectly how wonderful your vacation is going to be.
