A COLLAGE FOR YOU!!

I made this little collage Friday.  It is one of my "famous" board game collages!!  I took all of the old board games my boys had, and stole all of the boards, money and cards from them!!  The boards are a wonderful base for a collage.

And, I got another fabulous sheet from June at Dezinaworld.  This one is called "Shabby Chic".  The sheet has, I think, 16 images on it.  And there is a little of everything on it!!  Some Victorian ladies, some steam pun, some advertising, and bits and pieces of everything!!

We also got some backgrounds.  I started with that.  The burned edge (I think?) frame.  I put it on my game board piece, and began the delightful task of layering the images on top of lace, old game pieces and doilies.  To top it off, I added some puzzle pieces!!  
I LOVE this one!!  I think it is so fun and just lovely!!
I took the pictures 2 ways.  I am BAD when it comes to digital art of any kind.  You are all lucky I can put my name on my work!!  BUT, I found a way to make the picture look more vintage.  So the first image is done that way, and the second one is done normal.

I think they are both great!!  I can not pick which I like best.  Which would you pick????

  5. I like the first one the best because I think it brings out more details. I can see it in the pieces of the puzzle. Cute job! xo Diana

  6. I think they are both great, too, but I prefer the color in the second one. I am moving out of my neutral rut that I have been in (with my art) into more color. :D
