Collage - Dare

Since several of my collages have found a new home at The Purple Poppy, I have felt driven to complete some that have been left unfinished, or start new ones that had been brewing in my head.  Last week and this weekend, I was able to wrap up several collages.  I am really happy with the results.
I will share this one first.  It's a good Monday message.
Fortune befriends the bold.
Dare to be bold..., dare to be different..., dare to face the day... the choice is yours.

This collage is built on a flat canvas, with a wooden box behind it.  I used paint, handmade paper with Chinese character, reproduction advertisement and coins, and an old brass pull.  I am pleased with how this one turned out!  I love the sentiment: Fortune befriends the bold. 
Be bold today.

This collage now available at The Purple Poppy in Lafayette, Colorado.


  1. I love the colors! I especially LOVE the message. It's hard to find the courage to be bold sometimes, but it's not so hard to take that first step!

  2. Wonderful! The colour, the theme, everything. It's really motivating to step out and be a bit more bold.

  3. I love the collage. The message is really important to me. It is sometimes hard to be bold but than how will I ever find my good fortune if I don't take a chance? Thank you for sharing the process behind the collage. This was very helpful.
