Wealth Corner Collage!

I think I’ve mentioned before that my friend Jan is my homegrown Feng Shui advisor… my luck has turned since she and I spent a couple of hours on the phone a year ago+… but my money luck just hasn’t!! So, when Jan and her family came to visit recently, just as she was leaving, she turned and said, “Oh no! That’s your wealth corner, there,” pointing to the enormous pile of boxes and tackle standing in the corner of my hallway. Shocking! We thought it was in the kitchen, originally.

So, while DH was away (as soon as he’d gone, actually, because half that stuff left with him for France!), I managed to ‘lose’ most of that clutter – albeit to an upstairs room, thus freeing up my “wealth corner”. Now the Chi can flow into it – and hopefully, good fortune, too! I have 3 beautiful box frames of ancient Chinese coins hanging to the left of the corner, but there is nothing to the right, so in order to maintain balance and harmony (!!!!), I used that vibrant red and purple scrunchy magazine background sheet as the basis for this collage:

I also used a tomato puree tube for the 3 poppies grouped together, although I had stamped the image on the front (gold inside) of the tube, which made embossing them to make metal embellishments rather challenging!! I do make work for myself at times! So really, these flowers are double-embossed and colored with permanent markers. Here’s what they look like close-up:

Metal embellishment flowers

So, now to hang it where it will be most productive and to see if Dear Sandy and Dear Heike find it acceptable for Saturday’s Workout (emboss it);  and if Tracey finds it acceptable for her metal embellies challenge.

I wish you all a peaceful and happy weekend – I’m working as stand-in for someone who’s on holiday tomorrow, so I doubt I shall be up to blogging tomorrow, let alone have anything remotely relevant to tell you! I may even find some bargain Chinese objet d’art to add to my collage tomorrow, who knows? If anything funny happens that I feel I can share, be sure I will!! 😉
