Collage - Work in progress

Not sure what spurred me on to do this but each year i keep my Christmas cards with a view to doing something with them, in the past it was the predictable lets cut them out and use them for tags. Last year i had a go at recycling memories by making up a boxed card which is the small one above. So i thought I'd use them for a collage and i have grouped my cards into themes and this is my starting point. Not quite sure where i am going with this yet. The two front pieces aren't yet mounted but the main collage at the back is complete. There are a couple of pieces that are mounted away from the background with silicone glue and there is still room within the frame to maybe add something else but i want to be sure what before i take the glass out and clean it. I would really like to spray the outside frame and distress it but sometimes i take things too far and they become a bind but we'll see where it goes. Be interested in your opinions or suggestions...

I love this idea with cards Kerri. We end up with so many that are beautiful and as a rule just stick them in a box. Well done to you for coming up with this great idea.

Thank you for your comments on my blog. Chuffed to bits that I have finally cracked that layout. Mumxx

What a great idea! Your collage is looking wonderful. If you still want to add to it, then maybe some photos from Christmas 2008. Pics of you and your family, Christmas decor, tree, presents you gave and received. A poem about what Christmas means to you. The possibilities are endless. Have fun!

Creative Blessings,
Lisa :)
