Have a seat...

Long time no see.  Summer and life have interfered with my blog life.
But I have had some fun things working on my easel this summer.  This one is called "little red chair".  I used old papers to collage the chair.  It was tedious but I really liked the result.

And this one is called "Come, sit a spell".   The paper is really old  stained paper from an old Sears Roebuck Catalogue and some not so old paper.  I had wanted to add something more to
these but just couldn't make it work.
And blooming in the garden, inspite of torrential rains daily, a couple of dendrobium orchids.

Summer is quickly flying by and before we know it fall will be here.
Wishing you all a happy PPF and please visit again!

Hi Susan, each of your chairs are marvellous and using the old newspaper is certainly a great choice. It gives them a charming feel. Great backgrounds too.
The orchid photos are delightful and the raindrops are like little jewels.
Happy PPF :D)

Love your chair designs and the mixed media feel. An old Sears catalog??? Are there still any around? I remember them being about 8" thick!

That collage of text works amazingly well on these chairs. It almost looks like old wood. Such a great idea! I also like how the background shines through. I don't think these need anything more, is perfect as it is! Happy PPF ♥
