Collage Art Journal: Village-Themed Pages

As you can see in the title for this post, I’ve decided to come up with something more creative than “Pages such-and-such numbers” to describe my collage journal pages.  Maybe it helps that for this post, I have two collages with a similar theme, so we’ll see how far I get with this :~) The […]

Collage Art Journal: Pages 18-19

I have two collage journal pages to share with you today.  The first one I’m calling Stroll. I was taken by the image of the model – actress Alicia Vikander – walking on some Louis Vuitton luggage and decided to place her on water.  I had the image you see in the background of a […]

Collage Art Journal: Pages 15-17

Today’s collage journal share includes my most favorited collage on my Instagram account thus far. I guess people really like the bright colors of this collage and the funkiness of it.  It started out with the image of the woman in a bright yellow coat with red chili peppers in her hair.  She was so […]

Boo the Pomeranian Handmade Birthday Card

I recently had the great pleasure of taking my very first class with Bettina Pauly at San Francisco Center for the Book.  The class was for making a tunnel book.  As readers of my blog know, I have taken classes in the past for tunnel books, here and here, but Bettina had a very unusual take on […]

Michael Chiarello “Yum” ATC and a Birthday Card

Well, my ATC obsession continues :0) The inspiration for this ATC card was a photo pictorial of sorts in on of my Food Network Magazines, that summarized chef Michael Chiarello’s journey to opening a Spanish restaurant.  I liked the paper doll look of the images of the chef and decided to use one of them as the […]

My Very First ATC Card

In my last post, I mentioned that I have a new crafting obsession of sorts.  Well I’m here to tell you that I have fallen in love with ATCs, artist trading cards.  These are miniature works of art measuring 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches that are created to be traded among artists or given away.  The “canvas” is […]
