Nell

Hello dear ones! 
Nell Gwyn ( an actress and King Charles II's mistress 1650-1687) 
That is exactly why I chose her to "play" in my collage, as Juliet :) 
The oil on canvas of Nell Gwyn was painted by Sir Peter Lely - 1675. She is dressed up as a shepherdess. 
I cut out the sheep that she was holding and thus it fit perfectly with my project. :)
I also made a small wooden frame which I painted and used as a tag. 

hurricane Irene is nearing America, and the power of its winds will be felt in Canada as well! 
Lets all hold our fingers crossed for our friends in America! 

I wish you all lots of smiles and sunshine! 


Witam Was moi mili

Nell Gwyn ( aktorka,kochanka krola Charles II w latach 1650-1687)
Wlasnie dlatego ,ze byla aktorka obsadzialm ja w roli Juli do mojej zawieszki :)
Obraz olejny Nell Gwyn,namalowany przez Sir Peter Lely -1675 .Nell przebrana za pasterke.
Ja wycielam owieczke ktora obejmowala,co by mi pasowalo do mojego projektu :)
Zrobilam sobie jeszcze malenka ramke z drewna ktora pomalowalam i uzylam na tag.

Do Ameryki zbliza sie potezny churagan ,,Irena,, ktorego  sile wiatrow ma sie rowniez odczuc w Canadzie.
Trzymajmy ksciuki  za przyjaciol z Ameryki!
Zycze Wam duzo slonca i usmiechu

Hello Katherine:
What an intriguing combination of textures you use in your collages. The voluptuous Nell Gwynn seems wonderfully suited to the burgeoining roses and sumptuous velvet.

Yes, our thoughts are also with those threatened by Hurricane Irene. We hope that all will be well.

Trzymam kciuki że by nikomu nic się nie stało ././

Hi Kasia! Your collage is really lovely! I especially like the mixture of paper and fabric. Nice job!! Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. It's always nice to hear from you. :)

This collage is especially beautiful and romantic with the lace, roses and velvet. To be able to "create" something beautiful is such a gift. Thank you for the lovely words you left when you stopped to visit. Hope the Irene had fizzled out by the time she arrived in Canada. What a nasty lady she was in so many states here in America. Blessings,
Lynn

Kasieńko przepiękna zawieszka, bardzo mi się podoba tło :)
Jakie to szczęście, że nas nie nawiedzają tak często huragany...niestety zdarzają się i u nas coraz częściej. Będę się modlić, żeby nic złego się nie zdarzyło i żeby nie dotknęła Was żadna tragedia.

Dziękuję za zapisanie się na moje candy :)

Uściski przesyłam dla Ciebie i rodzinki :**
