More One Staple Collages!

Leslie liked the One Staple Collages I did with Jo and Lenna and asked if I wanted to do another. SURE! These can actually be quite addictive (Jo has made several since our swap and I love them all).
Here is what Leslie sent getting a "man" in the mail LOL. She used an actual magazine sheet for the envelope which survived the post office with minimal damage.
What a great collage - Mr. Darcy was especially impressed by it :). I really like the colours and it actually goes well with my Christmas board in my kitchen where it is currently on display...
I had a lot of fun with the one I made for Leslie - have you ever heard of a Electric Wonderbar. I have had the advert for it from the 1950sfor some time now.
Look - you can have a bar right by your chair and TV! How convenient (I think today a cooler would also do the trick - too funny).
I also found this "invitation" in a Betty Crocker book on entertaining - I am now going to end all my communications to friends with "Best" LOL...
Here is the envelope I sent it in. Painting and stamping.
I think I will be making more of these - it's fun to combine items and still tell a story. With that I guess I will end with ....... BEST, Jewels
