In Appreciation Of

my winning a sheet of stamps from Artistic Outpost . I decided to make a collage.  I have not had much experience at making collages.  I don't know why I don't do them more often as I enjoy making them.  There is the old adage "Practice makes perfect".  Maybe that could apply to me!

The theme of this collage is From Boys to Men.  I was thinking about Father's Day, but I have noone to give this to as my father passed away a number of years ago, but I often think about him.

This piece contains vintage clip art from Altered Artifacts and all the stamps are from Artistic Outpost.  The stamp sheets I used are Generation Redux and Steampunk.  In addition, on the collage you will find a chipboard key, a  Cricut diecut, and a bought embellishment.  A number of different papers was used in the background along with distressed ink.
