This collage is for the 'Wednesday Stampers' and the theme this week is..."The Eyes Have It". For the background I used sponged inks and then used sandpaper on the edges. The two stamps used are the circle flower around the eye and the eye itself. I used 2 buttons for embellishments. The large one came in handy to use as a frame for the eye. My hubby brought me home a Chinese newspaper to collage with....oh happy day! This collage was fun to make especially since I had the background paper done ahead of time.

Very neat! I love how you did the picture of the eye! How neat that you got your hands on a Chinese newspaper. By the way, I have heard about the dryer screen getting a film on it! Thanks!

Dear Maggie-ann...Thank you so much for visiting me so many times.
I am determined tonight to say hi to a few of my favorite links.
I am way far behind and THAT is so thoughtless of me.
When I came to your site and saw Psalm 1, I felt so refreshed.
That is another passage that was required memorizing in my school days.
How much the children nowadays are losing!
Oh, if the could only do more memorizing of the scriptures!
The love verses in 1Corinthians 13, if they were learned would make such a difference in this dark world!

Thank you so much for puttng such encouraging words in Maggie-ann[without the "e" hey you can't be perfect you know!!]...Love Terry

It is SO nice that we have Sabine back. I really missed her!!She is always such an encourager!!
