The Night Wedding

I took the wee mixed media piece I finished the other day and combined with loads of other things, mounted it in one half of a checkerboard case and completed the above piece. In my mind it was going to be simple and sparse... but as per usual my things have a mind of their own and this one ran away from me.

I'm calling it "The Night Wedding"

A while ago I purchased a lot of vintage images which included two photos of children, dressed in white, sitting on a rug in the grass. If you look on the right side of the first collage above you'll see another figure in white looking on... a bride! When these little collages turned out rather dark I thought it was actually rather fitting, for a band of pixies and imps would most certainly have a night wedding!

And so here sit my little revelers, making merry in the dark.

Oh, and if you're wondering about that little bit at the top... it's a walnut shell filled with toadstools, a tiny four leaf clover and ladybird to bring luck to the impish bride and groom.
