Here is my collage for this week's challenge
for Collage Obsession,
where the inspiration this week is Maps!
I call it "Butterfly Princess of Great Potential".
I had so much fun with this!
I altered a vintage photo of Louise Brooks
(who is so lovely, but was looking a little serious
in this picture for this project!)
I added the face of another lovely actress
and Ziegfield dancer of yesteryear,
Drucilla Strain and then added wings made from a
vintage map of Paris!
Her crown is the little directional thingy
that is on most maps, her brooch is the Palais de Louvre,
and there are strips of the map all through her
This collage is serving two purposes.
One, as my submission for this challenge,
but I also designed it as a
"Good Luck and Happy Retirement"card
for our friend Dawn, who is retiring from her job
at our teeny tiny post office, here in our teeny tiny town.
We will miss Our Miss Dawn!
She was always so sweet.
(I added lots of Black Diamond, Platinum and
Cinnamon Stickles to her card to make it
I hope The Butterfly Princess brings many years
of doing the things she would like to do with
