Dolce Far Niente

collage over Dolce Far Niente by John William Godward (1904 painting)

I am very dissatisfied with my current scanner situation! Anyway, as you might know, collage is one of my hobbies. It's fun to dabble digitally, but I prefer scissors and a glue stick. There is something very soothing about the process; in fact I've written about collage as DIY art therapy. In this case, I pasted magazine bits and a stamp over a card from my penpal. The painting is Dolce Far Niente by John William Godward. This is ostensibly related to #fashun because you can get the look! Via Etsy:

Click each picture to be taken to the listing, as usual. Alternate dresses: 1 & 2. Alternate scarves: 1, 2, & 3.

Feel free to check out two other recent collages if you're interested!


  1. I've never really made a collage before, it seems like a lot of fun!

  2. She is dreaming of FOREVER (stamps). Also, I feel like the lines you added, should belong there. I'm not suggesting you deface a painting, but just sayin'.

    1. Haha, I love forever stamps! So I can relate to that dream.

  3. She encapsulates perfectly how I feel today about writing my thesis. Not quite rocking back and forward in the foetal position, but certainly on the floor, curled up, staring blankly into space...


It's lovely to hear from you!
