“Play” is the theme at Mixed Media Monday. If you read my quote on my blog header, you’ll see that I value play very much!
for some time now I have wanted to play with some cardboard fans that I have collected, some old and some new, unique ways of advertising
this one was passed out at our son’s college orientation a couple of summers ago and was it ever hot moving him into a dorm with no air conditioning
I decided to collage on the back/blank side of the fan covering it with scrapbook paper to begin with, sanding the edges a bit, adding Brilliance ink to the edges.
The image of Mont Saint Michel is from an old encyclopedia (I actually used the original). I was lucky enough to visit there many years ago and stay overnight which was a special treat. It’s one of those places where busloads of visitors come to spend a few hours then leaving to continue their sight seeing. I would so Love to return someday and have some delicious crepes! Back in the day, I sort of ate my way through a nine week, nine country trek of Europe…those were the days!
Thanks again to Jean for the perfect swan page she sent me a while back. I am not using that original, but copies instead!
