vintage paris collage

I tried my hand at a collage the other day. I've been wanting to work on one foe awhile now and I had so much fun making it!!!

I used Paris themed paper with Fleur de leis paper for the background. 

I added vintage buttons and lace.  I took a ink pad and rubbed it over the fluer de leis paper and some of the lace to give it a more distressed look.



This is the first in the series and can be found in my etsy shop.  More collages of all kinds to come!!

Very cute! The thing I like about collages is that I use up the itty-bitty pieces of things I can never throw away!
