House on the hill

   I took a little break from stitching and have been playing around with collage!  I really enjoy the process.  It's like puzzle pieces.  I was first inspired by an artist on Etsy, Sarah Ogren.  She's fantastic and I love her work.  So I tried to emulate a couple pieces of her art work. 

Something I did different was I embroidered the boat.  It's stretched canvas
so it worked out nicely.

So then I designed my own piece, "House on the hill".  I used collage of course, embroidery and paint
as well.

I had my daughter who is 8 years old write in the words on the house
"Once a upon a time there was a house, a magical house on top of
a hill.  Wonderful things happened inside!"

This is how I was keeping my paper organized.
Well that's all for now, I just wanted to share what I was working on.
Tomorrow the dirt comes, so I hope to spend the weekend in the garden!
