Love Wishes and Dreams card

I had a big clean up on and around my art desk...I even spent 2 hrs sorting my chippy shapes into themes...then I wondered why the heck I bothered as I use chippy  in pieces when I make mixed media cards/work. Sure I may start with  say a tree branch but you would never know it by the end LOL I'm thinking I need to contact companies and ask for their off cuts!! My biggest\ stash in chippy is cogs and watch faces etc.......hhhmmm those of you whom know me well would know I am a steampunk fan with a passion for cogs, light bulbs and wings etc.

While I sorted my chippy stuff I left some out to use. Then I found one of my fav vintage child images, some white gesso unearthed under some card stock and then found my gel medium and a few small flowers and trinkets....and before I knew it I was making another mixed media card called "Love, wishes and dreams". I used Dylussions spray as the red/yellow colour and then Perfect Pearls Mist gold on top so its lovely and shimmery. First photo is with flash off.

Flash on

Closer look at the details. Cogs, buttons, zippers, press studs, light bulb, wooden peg, lace, chippy, flowers, watch parts etc etc

This last shot I tilted the card so you can sort of see the shimmer when the light hits it :o)

The card is large...just a bit bigger then A5. Hope the person I had in mind for this likes it :o). Don't forget I'll draw the winner of my Give Away below tomorrow so please enter if you want a chance to win. to colean up my desk again and I'll try to not get distracted this time LOL

This is so very beautiful Annette!
You have a beautiful style and a lovely way of arranging your collages.
Where do you buy your watch parts?
I would love to acquire even just a few as I have never used them and would love to try to incorporate them into some of my creations.
With much appreciation,
