Small canvas collages

I had these two small canvases left over from an unfinished project. They were originally painted. So, I used crackle paint over the canvas, and then antiqued it with vintage photo ink. You should recognize the Silversmith's Daughter (6"x6"). I had done this little piece a year or more ago with a corrugated board frame. The turquoise is a string of bits for making jewelry. I mounted the picture on a coffee dyed piece of fabric, then all of that on another piece of corrugated board. I finally glued it to the canvas. Love the doo-dads! It looks like bits her father might have used to make jewelry for her.
This is a little child that I mounted onto the small canvas (4"x4"). I love the colorful bead trim. It might have been a piece off of her costume.

I just have to add some eye screws and beaded wire to hang these two small framed pieces. Just another way to use the techniques learned from KC Willis Collage Camp. And I am using up things from my stash!
