Don’t Settle (Collage)

I’ve gotta say… I am lovin’ the bricks on this collage.  They turned out really well (*pats self on back*) and just seemed to fit with the rest of the design.  The pantsuit (isn’t it fabulous?) came from a vintage seventies pattern I found in an op-shop.  I picked up a few for 50c each – I love old dressmaking patterns and their gorgeous illustrations.  And then I cut them up ha ha.

This Deer Lady went through several changes before I settled on this head for her – she was almost a camel at one stage.  I toyed with the idea of her being a rabbit and an ostrich momentarily too, but the deer head seemed most appropriate and ladylike.

It’s one of the first times I’ve used my own quotes, rather than stealing a well-known one from someone much wiser than myself.  But it also seemed to fit.  Sometimes you’ve just gotta go with what feels right, right?

Thank you for stopping by.  Hope your day is amazing 🙂

    1. Thanks Dianne 🙂 I was happy with it too, and that doesn’t happen very often with me! She looks like she was born to lean elegantly against that wall 🙂
