end of summer

this is something I created as an "homage" to one of the most beautiful summers I have ever experienced since moving up here to the Pacific Northwest - where summer is not always guaranteed

it was also a birthday gift for "Ma Mere" (having waited to post this until after the celebration)


... and fall is in the air today - a beauty all its own awaits us ...

Ingredients:
-My own photograph: a well sanded print below; a smaller pristine square above
-Book text
-Thread
-Glass, chain, copper tape, solder

Beautiful ! Just beautiful. I love the sanded image underneath, it's muted, scratchy softness....it shows perfectly summer, gently blurring into autumn.

This is a wonderful soldered collage. It's perfectly balanced with all your elements! The sanded image looks great!

I love your use of thread in tour pieces, it gently makes connection. It's on my lovely sea glass heart. xox
