Rose Collages

I've been in rose mood again as you can see on my two latest collages. The first one I've sent to a friend for her birthday (to the one who paints/draws on the eggs) and the second I've pasted on a big canvas:

Dear Carol,
These are just so beautiful~I know what you mean about being in a "rose mood"~maybe its because we are longing for spring?! Where do you find all the lovely images to create your collages??

Wonderful collages, you've had a lot of work with them. I've been practising with my altered art book. The whole weekend I mixed the images, colored, etc. The style is totally different but I show you it later...

There beautiful collages Carol... I love roses too....I use to have a rose garden, but since my hubby passed away, so did my roses...My mom had alot of roses, all of them she started with a stem and some root tone....she would put the stem in the ground and cover it with a fruit jar, and in no time wala....she had a beautiful rose bush....some people just have that green thumb, and she was one, so did my hubby.....You do beautiful work.....

Thank you ladies for all your lovely comments :D

Kristy I'm glad that you still like your collage best and that Kitty is feeling better!

Laurie yes that must be the reason!I collect images from almost everywhere like calenders, postcards, victorian scraps, magazines, books,internet and I downloaded a lot from www.scrapbook-elements.com and then I print them out and cut them out.

Marion the first one is only DIN 4 like a normal page. The second one on canvas is 60 x 50 cm. I'm not sure if this is any help for you because I don't know the English measures.

I'm looking froward to see your first altered book pages soon Maria

Judy I'm so sorry to hear that your hubby has already passed away. Bless him! I can only imagine how beautiful his and your mums roses must have been.

Yeah call me Rose anytime Val and thanks for thinking at me :D

Duchess Standing Turtle lol a moon collage is not a bad idea, I'll think about it!

Al yes I think so, if you download it on your pc. I found it in Alisons brocante home blog today and just new you would love it! Have you ever visited her blog? The link is in my side bar, her blog is definitely worth a visit!
