Collage Obsession-Fruitful

Collage Obsessions challenge this week give us the theme Fruitful, and a lovely image of a painting by Millet. So I used both, incorporating a beautiful vintage ad for berry plants with the painting. To compensate for the gigantic fruit, I made the lovely ladies into tiny sprites.

I don't know where I found the ad--some time ago I found a site showing a lot of vintage ads from seed and plant catalogues, perhaps it was there. I also used a texture piece from Pareeerica at T4L,which brightened the soft colors, and a couple of brushes for the flourishes.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. So creative! I love that you made them into fairies:0)

  2. Lovely and beautiful! And delicious :P

  3. And big fat berries they ARE! Just precious....it's a fun piece to look at and I really love what you did with the image we were given. Bravo!

  4. Wow, this IS really fruitful - I could eat your collage! Or maybe I'd rather put it on to my wall :)))

    Thank you for participating!
