'So Be Mine' - Collage Coterie, Lesson 8

Lesson 8 of Collage Coterie is about creating a 3D book cover collage.  Mary gave a prompt word of 'mine' - so, here is mine.
The quote "So be mine, as I yours for ever" is from a poem by Robert Graves (Pygmalion to Galatea).  

The base of the collage is the back half of an old book cover.  All the metal pieces have ben dulled with alcohol inks (they were shiny and new, ugh!).  Attached to the dress ring at the top is a silver coloured heart charm.

I shall really miss the Collage Coterie course and the other girls I met in the classroom.  I hope Mary runs another course, I'll be first in the queue!

I really really like the looks of this one. The vintage look is perfect for the photo.

Jo... we seem to have opened a can of worms ... Joe said he has seen " a bit " of the Human Centipeed on the internet and...." it's disgusting ..." - How much did he see ? !

Great art work by the way !!!

Swoon! He is a dreamy looking gentleman!

I'm glad you have alcohol inks-- you might want to dull down some of the shinier suspender clips I am sending you. :)
