Inspiration Wednesday 2 finished result

Today I finished my second lesson at Inspiration Wednesday.

This lesson was all about collage...with a bit of gesso thrown in! ;)
One of the elements Donna used was some book paper so I decided to use something out of an old set of encyclopedias I have. Randomly I took one of the books from the shelf and randomly opened it where it fell open on "Portrait"
Spooky in a way as I had already made the stamped tissue paper with a number of face images on it! :)

Close up of some of the bits and bobs I found.....

this page includes a cava bottle cover (well I just had to didn't I?)....and that little bit of film strip that has been hanging around for years has at last found a great home, highlighting the word portrait :)

This page has some random paper bits and a piece of the packaging from my favourite Camembert cheese!

Another spooky thing.....Donna was using a type of wax to seal the pages she made to stop them sticking together.....and as I was "sort of" tidying my cupboard work space the "Easy sealing wax" label was sitting under a pile of I used it instead of the wax! lol

The quote running across the page reads "A portrait, to be a work of art, neither must nor may resemble the must paint its atmosphere"

I like the atmosphere of this page......and I learnt a couple of things along the way.

1. Yellow and grey together make me very happy :)

2. If I live to be 500 I shall never use up all the "treasures" I have accumulated. ROFL ;)

I'm linking to Hels Sunday Stamper as her theme is to use Wings....which I have....and "Wind beneath my wings" is one of my all time favourite songs......EVER.
(the version by Bette Midler preferably) ;)
It's ages since I have joined in and I'm really happy to be able to play along.

Thanks for looking
