Melange weekly challenge...lace


The prompt week is LACE...I'm not exactly sure what this piece has to do with lace other than the fact that I included some lace-like fabric I picked up at the flea market this weekend.

I used vintage ephemera for the background (ledger paper, a receipt, pieces from a pattern, a handwritten recipe, and an ad for lace) then I transferred an image over the top, embellished with thread, lace and a few buttons, and finally mounted it on an 8"x8" canvas board.

Visit the melange blog for the weekly prompt, then create a mixed media piece and link to your piece in the blog comments. Anyone is invited to participate, you don't need to be a melange team member.

Love it Alisa, and I think it has a lot to do with lace, you have the advertisement and lace, and I love the gel transfer, I am hooked on them too :)

Where in the world did you ever find the article about lace?! How perfect is that. I love the layers and yet it is not cluttered. Very well done and very, very pretty!

Beautifully done Alisa! Love the mood of it which reflects the theme of lace.

You made me realize I whine if someone doesn't tell a bit about what they did to create it, and never said a word. LOL
