Little Meg

Little meg is another of those wonderful Paper Whimsy images they are very haunting and beautiful.
This is done on canvas with golden crackle paste. It is kept very simple as the image needs no help.The crystal piece I picked up at a junk store so I pasted the words behind it onto the glass and used a rub on the top saying "the story so far".
The halve piece is from Papier Valise another wonderful store in Canada

Love your 2 latest pieces Jen & I agree the PW images speak for them selves.
Good luck with Nature Boy.....I'm hoping to see him in Somerset in the near future, a wonderful assemblage!

Hi Jen... this is so gorgeous and I agree that the Paper Whimsy collage pics are just beautiful. Can you please tell me where you purchased yours from?? Direct?? I have been waiting for one of the girls out this way to buy them in, but no luck so far. Also what is the Golden's crackle paste?? So many questions, sorry enquiring minds and all that.... Natxx

This piece is stunning, the simplicity works beautifully. The crackle paste looks great, just enough to make the background intresting.
