Overindulgent

This piece is for the challenge on Collage Obsession. I used the image provided (click here to view) & the chosen word for this week which was Pair.

I was rather indulgent with my layers & additions & had to stop myself from adding any more or make any more changes as I was getting carried away ...

... but I did have fun!


So here goes ...

a pair of paper clips, a pair of flowers, a pair of postcards, a couple dancing, a pair of hearts on the brads, a girl needing someone else to play with, because everyone knows you need two for tennis, a pair of ribbons & not forgetting the challenge image of the old couple posing for their photograph.

Some of the elements were layered twice & I'm sure there are more pairs in there somewhere!

The couple from the original image looked so stern & unaffectionate, that I of course went for the soft romantic reds & pinks, with a few hearts thrown in for good measure. It has a feel of a pinboard, with memories of past travels.

Credits go to:-Sandi Krieger for her World Traveller & Travel Papers digital kits which were available at Two Peas in a Bucket (does that make a pair of kits & a pair of peas?)

The Graphics Fairy for the postcard images & other photographs used

Shabby Princess for the many elements used from their Amore collection, the flowers from Dinner Party & paper clip from Express Yourself
