"Spoons" is the challenge at Wednesday Stamper. I made the spoon with the wrapping of a Kinder Chocolate bar. I also used two freebies from Inka and a napkin by Ihr (another German brand); the dragonfly stamp is by PSX; the swirling tree is by Inkadinkado, the diamond background stamp is by Local King and then there's also a checked border on top by Daneele Johnson for Limited Edition and and a vintage flower stamp that belongs to my father's collection. (As a primary school teacher, he bought lots of stamps to use in school with his pupils, but actually he hasn't given them much use. Lucky me, because after more than 30 years all his stamps are still in great shape!) :-)

Peacock is the theme at TMTA.
This was the only peacock image I had among my scraps...
It wasn't easy photographing this ATC because none of the pictures I took managed to show both the Egyptian stamp, the stamped feathers and the blue glitter on the body of the peacock.
"Collage" is the theme at Saturday's Workout. Before there was blogland in my life there was "collage land". :-) . It wasn't easy to choose a collage to display here, though, because I really enjoy most of the collages I've made through the years... Making collages is so much fun! This is just one of the many I made when I was a university student and it was the cover of the diary I kept back in 1994, so like most of my collages it's A4-sized - about 8"x12".
Just in case you're wondering, the photocopied handsome guy was the late actor Montgomery Clift, my favourite actor ever since I watched Alfred Hitchcock's "I confess" - Absolutely dazzling! (Monty Clift, not Hitchcock, of course.) :-) At the time all I had from Monty was a magazine clipping, which I considered too valuable to "spoil" in a collage... go figure... LOL
Thanks for looking!
