Roses

Hi Everyone!
I hope all is well with you.
I thought the White on White tags were very inventive, and although it was a challenge, it was a good idea to work in one neutral colour. The textures and layers that emerged on the tags were wonderful.
For my Roses tag I decided to assemble some materials containing roses, and bring them together in one collage. I used some rose printed chintz for the background, with a clothes tag, black and white stamped roses. a black silk rose, a permaclay rose (made by a friend), some dried wild roses, a rose patterned button, and an embroidered border. I added another tag with an appropriate quotation on. I took a photo of it on a back cloth of cotton rosebuds.


Here is a close up.



The quotation :

It is the month of June,
The month of leaves and roses,
When pleasant sights salute the eyes
And pleasant scents the noses.
Nathaniel Parker Willis
(1806-1867)
American author, poet, critic and editor

  7. I love your collage assemblage of roses. It has a sweet vintage feel which was accentuated through the addition of Willis's quote. Blessings!
