My " take " on the word is a little unusual ... " Inspiration " for this collage came from a big spider web I spotted right outside my window one recent morning ... I was at that time looking through an antique nursery rhyme book and came upon the Little Miss Muffett rhyme ... well one thing lead to another and VIOLA ... I have titled it " Little Ms. Muffett Ain't Afraid Of Spiders !
I wove the thread web onto the canvas board that I had painted and texturized with paper , paint and glitter . I added pictures from old postcards , bits of antique lace and an old earring that I cut apart . I finished it with a sprinkling of very old mica flakes !

Full time mom of two teenage boys .... need I say more ! I work and pay my bills working full time for a stamp dealer ... yes postage stamps ... amazing how much I have enjoyed this job of 4 years . In my not so much spare time I like to create "art" with all the " stuff" I find in all my jaunts to flea markets and yard sales . And oh yeah... I forgot ...
