More fabric collage

In my previous post
I showed you some of the
beach themed fabric collages
I'm making for gifts.

Here are just a few more I've made,
with different themes.
You can click on each photo to enlarge if you like.
Copyright free photos are found online,
or use your own vintage photos.

This one uses some of my pieces of rusted fabric,
and also a dictionary page for the word
You can add anything.
Sometimes I add my paper fabric,
pieces of old maps etc.
This one uses a piece of sari ribbon.
I save even the smallest pieces
for projects like this.

I like to mix florals, stripes and solids.
I also alternate often with lights and darks.
Remember balance and design principles,
even for things such as these fragments.

If you make some, let me know,
I would love to see them.

Savor the Day!
