Travel matchbox

This is my challenge on Gas Mamma swap this month.

It is a neck-piece with collage inside.
My offering is - travel to Italy.
Made with pictures, ink, found items, cord, beads.
At top is a bead I made.
Some stamping and embossing was added too.
Love to do these, think I like diminutives!

Oh it is so lovely Lilla, this necklace is so pure, and even though i never went to Italy, reminds me a beautiful travel.

Have you seen the James Ivory's film "chambre avec vue", which is about a story which takes place by the river Arno ?

Your image transfer is perfect, and the vintage look just ok.

A bientôt,

These are absolutely amazing - is there no end to your gifted talents? Is there Tute' any where for making them - are is it something you thought up.

Lilla you are so very blessed to be given such exquisite talents.

After a closer look I see that it is a matchbox - outside and inside - amazing as well as beautiful.

I must have a go at this.

Lilla this is wonderful. I shall look at Italy with new eyes when I travel there in a couple of weeks. Matchboxes are lots of fun to create with and "open" ways to be show more of our art. :o)

I did see the film "Room with a View"
Lovely and so is Italy and their films.
I like the old world a lot, since I come from the very new, it is wonderful, a feast for the senses.
Mahalo for the comments from all of my friends,
