Pearls and Lace Thursday #128 Finished, Think on These Things Fabric and Lace Collage

Fabric and Lace Collage
Think on These Things
Pink and Cream with Pearls and Lace

I have had the idea for this collage in my head now for months and months.  I even shared the idea with my friend Wilma and she has encouraged me greatly to do this piece.  Beverly, I thought of you too while I was working on this...pinks and laces....
And yes, Melanie, I was up at 2 in the morning working on this!!
I hope you will be blessed by the Bible verse that I used for it.  Each one of the things listed are things to think on...

Using the laces, trims, appliques, fabrics, pearl and rhinestone buttons I love to embellish this collage made for a number of evenings of fun.  Each patch with the word or phrase on it was made first, then embellished.
Then the whole was put together and sewn down to the foundation fabrics.
Next week I will do a post about the construction of this collage so that if you'd like to make one you can get some ideas. 

My husband helped me hang it on a ruled wooden piece that used to be a hem measuring device.
The only parts of lace that I made myself were the crocheted roses.  The laces and embellishments are all pieces I've hoarded and collected over the past few years. 
I'd like to thank each of the women who have inspired me by their collage talents over the past months.  I've pinned HUNDREDS of collage pics on my Pinterest Board labeled Fabric and Lace Collage, and just can't seem to get enough.  To each one of you who have shared your lovely talents with the world, a huge thank you and a huge hug!!
