I love this one! And those numbers and letters peeking at the lower right corner--ah, they just feel so right!

Thanks, and thanks for noticing that detail, I like that a lot myself! One of those accidental things that felt right when I saw it.

Somehow, those small details complete a collage (or any work of art for that matter).

easier said than done if you are nodding at what I believe you are nodding at (living quietly and peacefully)! But a good goal.

Well, yes that's technically correct, essential oils (and maybe a little reflexology now and then) would certainly help make one's life better, ah, ah !

Cool one.

Wow, quite a contradiction here, with chaotic composition and evocations of 'peace' and 'quiet'.

Clever! :nod:

I was working along to get to seven scraps - when I saw the "quietly" one I knew that would finish it.

:D yes, the oils are soothing even if not magical - in lavender soap in this case.

the exclamation point after the english words hints that it is not so simple! :heart:
