I love the use of fabric in this collage. I also checked out your website, so nicely done - good job. My favorite thing about your blog are the photograghs. Nice to hear you are feeling better and back at Illustration Friday!

Nice Work! Lovely design!! You might not believe this, but I am the designer of that little heart shaped embellishment you used! I developed the whole Architexture™ line. So excited to see it branching out in the world of illustration and collage! Are you an avid scrapbooker?

Thanks to everyone for the kind comments!!

melba - I used paper, actually, tore the edges to make the I. Most...actually...all of the tactile elements are scrapbooking supplies.

m.b. - I've been doing paper arts for over 15 years, 10 of which has involved scrapbooking.
I got my first SLR camera in 1993 so photography became one of my hobbies. In 1995, scrapbooking entered my realm of paper crafts and is still a big passion. Now with digital photography, I take more photos than ever and try to scrapbook as many pages as my creative energy can muster.
I *LOVE* all of the Architexture elements!! Another one of my passions is architecture so your elements show up in my sb and collage pages very often. It's great how a lot of paths are crossing via IF.
