Shabby Wren Collage

It’s not very often that I do collage.  Wait.  That’s not exactly the truth.

Let me clarify.
It’s not very often that I do collage and don’t do any painting or sketching or doodling along with it.

When I got the opportunity to take part in a “Shabby Chic” ATC Swap, I jumped in with both feet.

I made a decision not to paint or doodle or draw.  I would only use papers and textural elements.

And so… this sweet little atc was made only with layers of paper glued down, lace, thread, a button and feathers from my chickens, who are molting right now.  (There are feathers everywhere!!! I’m saving the prettiest to use in my crafting)  I did use a little distress ink on the lace and the edges.
I am really pleased with the way it turned out.
