Collage Art

Pin It!

It may sound strange, but shopping at
Hallmark always puts me in a good mood.

I've been designing a little workspace for
myself and I saw this beautiful artwork by
Kelly Rae Roberts at my local Hallmark store.
It would look great on the wall above my table.


I fell in love with it, ALMOST bought it,
then wondered if I could use it as inspiration
to make something of my own.


Instead of buying a stretched canvas (like the original)
I found a wooden "Hawaii" plaque at the the thrift store
for $2. I almost primed it, but then I realized that I
could Mod Podge right over it. 
For the words, I changed the font on each letter
of the Faith, Trust, etc. message.
I also glued some sequins & beads on.
I glued lace on the fairy wing.

This is my version . . . 



I might try it again with fewer kinds of paper. 
Maybe it's too busy?

And, I still really love the one at the Hallmark store
Maybe I'll get one of those too!

I'll show you my work space IF I ever finish it! Ha ha.

Warmly, Michelle

  3. It looks great. You are really creative. I showed your sweet gifts to me in my blog post today. I'll use them as sweater flowers when it gets cooler, but for now, I wanted them displayed :-) Thanks so much for them, they truly are beautiful!
    Blessings,

  4. Fun project! I love to get inspiration from things I see in stores, "I can do that...!"
    I might suggest you rough it up just a tiny bit and maybe put a very light glaze over some bits of it. Just a thought...
    Very cute!
