Recent Collage

Hello Friends and Family. I had an opportunity to work on a collage this week at a creative nights meetups. We have a really good time there, and each month the project is different. I have met some new friends there, and am looking forward to the meetup next month. I am sharing this collage with you even though I am not crazy about it. I had limited paints and supplies, and being in a rush just took its toll on this. I think I could work on it again and possibly make it work. Let me know what you think I should do to it. I call this piece Angela, after my daughter.

More Art Today!


Hello Friends and Family. This is a scan of my own collage that I received from our latest canvas/collage board RR. My theme was Shabby Chic, and if you scroll down aways, you will see what work I did on it before I sent it out.

I am very happy with it, and I will probably add just a little more to it before I call it finished! I really appreciate my group and the great work that they do.

Here is another collage board that I worked on today. This one was great fun, and I really enjoyed it. It belongs to my friend Wanda. I added the five images across the top area, the spider and web, the boy with the pumpkin and the skulls. It wouldn’t be Halloween without skulls! I hope you enjoy seeing this one. It is finished in this RR, and is going home tomorrow.

Here are a couple of the Torsos I have made for a swap. I scanned in another one, but I have no idea where it is now. If I come across it then I will post that one. I am going to make a few more for myself, and make a little garland out of the ones that I received and the ones that I will make.  If you haven’t tried altering a torso then give it a try. It is fun and quick. These are about five inches tall and three inches wide. I hope you like.

Well, I am ready to move on to something else now, but first I have to clean up my art room! It looks like a tornado went through here. TTYL

Hello Friends and Family. I have mailed off my Christmas book to be worked in by the first person, Stacy. I am excited to be doing another RR, and I hope that all of my group will have fun with it. I had been planning to do the book on Vintage Christmases, but I only got past the first spread, and then my muse took over, and I went glitter crazy on my signin spreads. That is OK though because at least I have had my fill of it. Now to get on with the themes that each of us chose. I think I will receive a book tomorrow to start on.
Do you remember back in June when I started on my altered canvas/collage board. Well, it is home and it looks   great. I will upload a photo tomorrow. I just hadn't written in a few days, and I wanted to say "Hi all of you art lovers!". TTYL
