The map is one I found inside a thrifted book. The engine image is from a library book my sister gave me when the library where she works was going to toss it. Scrabble tiles, luggage keys, a wooden checker piece, and a clipboard finish the ensemble.
I used drywall compound and crayons to achieve the finish on this clipboard collage.
This collage was created on a salvaged tin serving tray. The papers are from an old dictionary. The jewel piece is from the thrift store.
Valentine card for my hubs a few years ago. The text is some lyrics from the Thomson Twins song King for a Day (Yes, I grew up in the eighties).

I saw the motto I used on this collage on a plain wooden plaque at Festival (grocery store). I liked it so much I decided my husband needed it at work. :)
