Collage Obsession: Jewelry

Did you know that my Mother named me after the TIFFANY & CO.  jewelry store? I haven’t had “breakfast” at Tiffany’s yet…but one day, I will drape myself in ice (diamonds) bought from my namesake. Until then, I will collage like mad! LOL.

Itkupilli challenged us at Collage Obsession to use the vintage photo she provided, and/or express the word, “jewelry”, in our artwork. I started with an Yves Saint Laurent jewelry ad, and this is what I created:

Here is a view of it laying flat:

Then, I decided to add some textured 12x12 scrapbook paper. My husband thinks it looks like Victorian wallpaper. I agree.


Here are some details about the collage:
  • It consists of 3-layered transparencies –  (1) YSL pearl necklace ad (from InStyle magazine), (2) Text in left column (written by me), and the vintage photo.
  • Cuff bracelet was cut from magazine ad, and sandwiched between 2 transparencies. 
  • Rhinestone flower brad on cuff holds sheets together.
  • Typewriter keys spell “v-i-x-e-n”.
  • Glitter photo corners by Martha Stewart Crafts.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Have an excellent day!
Shine, God Bless & XOX
