White & Black "Dream" Collage

Here is a 5 x 7 framed piece I made awhile ago.  It is in a vintage metal frame that has some nice detail.  The angel/fairy is from Graphic's Fairy from a long time ago and I added some glitter to her wings & black glitter to frame the print, with scissored edges that I inked.  The background paper is flocked.  
How is everyone's week going?  It has been raining tons & tons here.  Lots of flooding in some areas & even our little park looks like an island in the center of the river!  Pretty startling when I saw it.  The waters have receded, but the rain is coming in sheets today so not a good sign.  Can you see in the pic below, the smaller green tree in the center & the piece of wood sticking up?  I have stood on that bank taking pictures.  The water on this side of it is the swollen river...
It has been pretty dreary here in the last couple of weeks.  We need a little sunshine!  But of course, that is probably true of many of you too!  How's the weather in your neck of the woods??

Hello Cindy:
Your black and white collage is very pretty. So many elements carefully put together, you must have amazing patience.

Rain, rain and more rain here too on the South Coast of England. Just wall to wall grey, it would be good to see a little sun shining through!

Hmm vintage image and glitter, sounds like the perfect collage combination!

Oh the weather here has been dreary too, waiting and watching for the sun. I hope the rains end soon for you.

Wow, Cindy! I love your collage and all the embellishments! Lots of textures.
I can't believe what the park looks like! I was wondering about it though! Wow! I bet I could have seen it from my old bedroom window, huh?
I miss that house...:(

Hello Cindy,

You don't know me but I read Tracy's blog "Cotton Pickin Cute" and I viewed the card that she made for you. I just wanted to stop by and say you have a beautiful blog, I will stop by more often and you and your family have my deepest condolences. I will be thinking of you. Take care,
