Ice Cream Cone Collages - Done!

The ice cream cone collages are done. They were SO much fun! I can't wait to do more. The only thing left to finish these two are a couple of coats of varnish. I especially enjoyed including little "surprises" in the torn bits of paper. The cherry on the chocolate cone includes foil paper from a Baskins Robbins hard candy wrapper. The word "chocolate" was ripped from magazines and included in the ice cream. Musical note paper is worked into the cone.


In the strawberry cone painting, again there is Baskin Robbins wrapper paper, the word "strawberry" appears several times, along with Flavors and Gather round. Gathering round are a doe and fawn, a buffalo cow and calf and even a wolf appears - to wolf down the ice cream!
I hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I enjoyed making them.


Have a great week!

  2. Thank you! I want to do more! Since I got the bright idea from Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson, I've been brain tied because all the ideas that have popped into my head are things she's already done. It's almost bizarre to the extent that has happened. I don't want to look like a copycat or make her feel like I'm one - though I know the quality of mine isn't in the same league as hers.
