I finally get to show you the collage I made for my daughter for Christmas. Because I became inspired by all of you folks who cut and paste, paint and draw the beautiful journal pages and colorful collages, I decided that I would make some collages too. I made two, one of which I shared in a previous post, and both made for the daughters in my life...Maria (my daughter) and Tabitha (my fiance's daughter). They are both lovely young ladies and in their early 20's. I wanted to do something special for them. A gift that they would have for a long time-something more meaningful than store bought gifts. I think they turned out well, what do you think?
Here are a few details of the Maria collage. I used oragami paper, magazines, watercolors, glue and a few sparkles. I included a quote on each collage that seemed perfect for that particular daughter. The words that I used on each collage were descriptive words-qualities that each of the young ladies has. I found a neat internet site where you could look up names and their meanings.
In case you didn't see the post of the collage I made for Tabitha...here are the photos of it again...
