Mim's Last Page!

This was not easy. I can't paint/draw human beings so I had to make a collage for Mim's strong women theme. And this is my first collage.
Click to enlarge and see if you recognize any of these 9 strong women (which I grouped in a the shape of a mandala)..............
The back I copied a vintage card of a real strong woman;
Charmion (1875 - 1949), vaudeville strongwoman and trapeze artist
And a poem I found on the internet (could find the source)
Click to enlarge!
I will send Mim's pages later this week together with Lynn's and Lolo's.
hope you have some more patience.........


  1. Lovely, lovely page! I also like your site design now, very beautiful! Your painted mandala quilt you did for Lynn's book was also amazing! Hope your year has started off well!

  2. Of course you placed these strong women in a mandala. I recognize several of them. She will love her pages.

  3. are you in there?? This is a fun idea for strong women. back and front both. YOu have been busy, eh??? I find this such fun.

  4. I recognize several of the women. I knew Frida would be there!

    I tried loking up the author of that poem but it landed me on a not so nice site for some reason. You never know!
    I do love that poem and your collage. yay for you for doing a collage!!

  5. Wow, you did a great job on this page. Yes, I recognized most of the women.

  6. I recognise many of the women too! The mandala collage is a lovely idea and can well understand that you didn't find it easy - sometimes I struggle for ages to make things look right and have to make myself stop fiddling and go for it!! x
