And a few Pieces to go with the new Decor

I got my hands on some very old handwriting instruction books.
and incorporated a piece of my disintegration project
Thought I would do a little messing around with collage yesterday.




I'm the Imelda Marcos of collage shoes lately.





Still having fun with the stash of labels that my world traveling brother gave me.

    I just made my signage for the gallery out of those tablets. How funny.

  4. Love these collages. I like the material that you select to use in your art it's similar to my taste (if I were more ambitious to make more). :)

  11. Fun collages. I love the juxtaposition of the shoe and the cockfight. If only roosters could wear high heels.

  13. I really enjoy your collages and I must admit it looks like you are having way too much fun !
    I know Art and Music has been cut from school but all children should be able to create collages. They are fun and just the act of creating makes you feel great.

    Most of my collages are made for postcards.
    I save every scrap of paper from when I visit family in Japan and my suitcases are stuffed with paper when I come home. I even have family trained, I get mail stuffed with advertisements, menus, newspaper, business cards, even receipts I love my Japanese family.

    cheers, parsnip
