When my niece, Giada was born, my sister (her mom) wrote a poem for her. She is turned three on Wednesday, and I wanted to create a collage for my sister that incorporated her poem. I first created a digital collage of Giada in Photoshop then printed it on a cotton printer sheet and embellished it with lots of embroidery. Then I created the collage with old book pages, tissue paper, wrapping paper, some old sewing patterns and some old ledger paper. Then I layered with paint, stamps, inks, and buttons.
