Mixed Media Ballet Collage

This is a ballet-inspired sign that I made last night as a gift for one of my daughter's ballet teachers. I used a handy MDF board (made for making banners) -- these work really well for sign-making! This is the first time that I've tried using all of these different materials on one piece; in particular, I usually don't use this much lace. It took me a lot of time to piece this one together. When I was finally ready to start gluing all the parts down, I was so excited that I forgot to ink the edges -- and, of course, once it's glued down it's too late for that. Oh well! I'm still not exactly sure about the composition of it, but in general, I'm really happy with how this one came out.
I need to make one more ballet teacher gift. This time, I think I'll focus on blues and pinks. Stay tuned!
