Be Brave …

my collage was created on the lid of a cigar box with a couple of images I have had printed and handy for some time…

  12. She’s quite luscious, isn’t she? I love the texture and pop of gold. I bet the stiffness of the cigar box top makes a great background to layer and paint on! have a happy new year!

  16. I love the colours and textures – that little piece of cheesecloth really draws the eye – on this beautiful page, along with the sentiment. Bravery appears in the most unexpected places and it is not always shown by the obviously tough and macho! Sometimes it takes so much courage to be soft, subtle or vulnerable. I love Dolly’s quote too. What an extraordinary woman! So full of heart! xx
