Calling them done...

A couple of weekends ago the girls came over for a crafty day.  I was determined to work on my pile of unfinished projects so at least some of them could be called done.

This is a collage I've been working on.  I created the background and it took a bit to figure out what I wanted to add to it for a focal point and decided flowers fit with it.  Next, to figure out how I want to frame it.

 I finally added the last piece to these two with the numbers.  I toyed with adding some more dimension but I like them just the way they are.  I just love working with old papers.

This final one I started early last year and finally came back to it.  I think it is done unless I decide it needs some words but I need to find a frame for this one too.  I think it may make it to my Etsy shop which is sadly empty at the moment.

Today would have been a good to work on some more unfinished projects but it ended up being a day of rest.  I would really like to get back to doing more on the weekend and feeling more of a sense of accomplishment.  sigh.

Fantastic color, depth and design to these pieces Laurel!

I think I may have had trouble covering up the beautiful backgrounds...but you managed to do a brilliant job!

Happy Weekend to you
p.s. hope you get to play with some found poetry :)
