UNstuck!

Yesterday I asked for input.  Thanks for your feedback, everyone!  I took the challenge, and just in time, for today is the deadline for a June Collage Challenge that Laurie suggested. Laurie is a friend that I met in a journal swap that happened to be a lot of fun.  She is a great collector of ephemera and you really shouldn't miss her wonderful blog. 

Anyway, I liked the challenge that she suggested:  Create any piece of art using at least part of each of the 3 images that were provided for download.  You can see the three on the link above.  Here is my offering and the process to complete it.  And you can see the other participants artwork on the Green Pages blog.

I started with an ordinary shipping tag, removing the string.



After downloading the required collage prints, I started cutting and pasting.


In my ephemera stash,  I had a little package of some pressed flowers that I previously didn't know what to do with.


Here's the finished tag!  "Time for Perfumery"!

 What a fun challenge!  It added a little bit of fun to my day!!!

Sooooo glad you joined in - I love your creativity - that you didn't use the figures, but part of her dress instead - brilliant!

Thanks Mary! I just needed the background color for what I envisioned. But, I did use the figures for some other tags. Thanks for the opportunity!

WOO HOO! I really like what you did with this challenge, and especially the way you did not let the limited lines of the tag keep you inside. Looks like you are truly back. Hugs

How cool! I always envy people who jump right in and "do it now" == and you got in just under the wire! Mary and her blog are fabulous! I love what you did with the tag!

Very creative! I like to make little quilts. Haven't gotten brave enough to step-up to the big quilts.

I found your blog on Etsy Blog Team and glad I did.

Stop by my blog and shop when you get the chance.

Hi, this is my first time to participate in Mary's challenge and I'm visiting around to the participants sites. I love your tag especially how you used the little pressed flower. I have used pressed flowers/leaves in my art and it caught my eye. Beautiful!
