Grimm fairytale 5x5 Collage swap: Fiona Brockie

Fiona Brockie from Aberdeen, Scotland has made some very cool 5" x 5" collages! For me, to think about a winner for the most creative collages is getting harder and harder as time goes on, and more outstanding and beautiful things come in. I will try to keep my head on straight! Everyone will receive a gift for participating from Alpha Stamps, but one participant will win a First Prize, and Leslie has asked me to choose -yikes! Saturday the 28th of June is the last day for me to receive collages, as that is the 'received by' deadline day.

Fiona's swap pieces are very appealing to me because while she has used a sturdy card stock base, there is wadding or batting in the middle and a fabric layer sewn on the top. Fiona has also elected to use fabric collage images from the Brothers' Grimm collection. These are so nice and soft to the touch! She used a clear transparency sheet too, called Cinderella Borders that really adds a great look to her collages. There is also iridescent fibers, gold thread stitching, hand sewn buttons, beading and text from Cinderella printed onto fabric - wow!!! Click on any scan for more detail!

Fiona also made this ATC for me below, besides making extra collages. Thank you so much, Fiona!
