Magazine collage continued!

I used 4 pages from Victoria magazine and cut and pasted on cardboard with golden liquid medium. I added my own flowers with golden liquid acrylics, caran d'arch WC crayons , and flower at top I had in my dried flower stash. I tried to lighten some areas where I thought more light would be from the lanterns to try and make it glow!

It does glow. It's lovely.

I wish I lived someplace that I could have those huge Japanese latterns strung up in the summer time - they're so lovely!

I was just bemoaning the demise of the old Victoria magazine - the one they publish now "Bliss Victorian" is hardly worth the subscription price -the articles just aren't up to the old magazine.

Ah oh. I'm starting to sound like one of the those old "good ol' days" cranks.
