My new love is vintage frames! I can't find enough of them and they can't be beat up enough! The only problem is that the frames can be quite expensive. A lucky scavenger can find some inexpensive beauties at flea markets and estate sells if she has a sharp eye. This frame is a lovely example and the perfect one for this collage. This piece is one of a series of collages in frames that represent women in my life. Jennie is my mother's name and April 17th was her birthday. I just love the textures of the different vintage papers and the punch of bright green, the color of my mother's eyes. I am delighted to be able to take pieces of what other people would would consider trash and to have the ability to turn them into meaningful pieces of art!
