Enjoy Being a Girl Collage

Here's another canvas from today! It's a 4 x 4". I like working in the bright colors too. This girl is an image that I really like but haven't gotten on a collage sheet yet. I used some vintage French text, scrapbook papers, tiny gold French German scrap border, pink floral border German scrap, Lumiere paints, acrylic paints, some Scrabble letters I found in one of my many stashes (had these things for years and never used any of them) and a pink paper flower. I used a letter "g" foam stamp in gold on the sides. This canvas will also be for sale at Collage Stuff.

Believe in Green ATC

I started working on my ATC's for the Collage Stuff "Green with Envy" ATC swap last night and got my design finished. This ATC uses an image from the Collage Stuff "Fairy Parade" collage sheet, the Collage Stuff "French Text" rubber stamp, a stamp from the Collage Stuff ATC Set D Vintage Sisters rubber stamp set, Golden gold mica flakes, Golden glazes, crackle paint, an aging varnish and dotted ribbon.

Special Delivery Collage

Here's a new mixed media collage that I just finished. It's on a 3 x 5" stretched canvas. I've used an image from the Collage Stuff "Vintage Cuties" collage sheet, crackle paints, scrapbook papers, buttons from an estate sale, Swarovsky crystals and dotted ribbon. I colored the black and white image with acylic paints diluted in clear glaze and colored glazes. The image has more color in person. The photo washes out the color. This collage will be available for purchase at Collage Stuff,

Variation on the Woman in the Moon ATC

I just got in this new German scrap border - the tiny gold French border, so I decided to try it out and I *love* it!

It's tiny, but big enough to be noticed! Get your own tiny gold French border at Collage Stuff!!

Woman in the Moon ATC

Here's my entry for the Woman in the Moon swap I'm hosting on the artisttradingcards yahoo group.

Sometimes, most of the time, things look better in person! At least I think this one does. I used an image from the Collage Stuff "Heavenly Bodies" collage sheet. I changed the tint to blue and printed it out on a transparency. It's backed with some sort of foreign text. The background is scrapbook papers and cardstock. The last layer is stamped with gold Golden glaze to give it some zing! Then little stars are punched out and filled with glitter. I like the little snips of gold Renaissance border sprinked around in person, but not so much in the photo. Oh well!!

Things with Wings ATC

The "Things with Wings" ATC swap just closed on the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group. Here's my entry.

The central image is from the "Meagan" collage sheet. She's one of my favorites. I used black crackle paint off on the left side of this. The background is made with several different papers, and Golden glazes. I used the bottom of my glue stick in a black ink pad to make the circles on the right side of the background. The tape across the bottom is 7 Gypsies gaffer tape. The halo is a small gold round frame German scrap item. The collage sheet and German scrap are available at Collage Stuff. To see all of the ATC's submitted for the swap, go to

New Victorian Scrap Finally Here!!

Let me tell you the story of this wondering and WONDERFUL Victorian scrap! I ordered a bunch of great new Victorian scraps at the CHA show in February. They appeared at my door today! These scraps were originally shipped from Germany in February, arrived in the US in March and the USPS sent them to Indonesia. Yes, Indonesia. Nobody knows why. They arrived back in Germany two weeks ago and were shipped by another shipper that bypassed the USPS. This is only a sampling of the new Victorian scrap sheets. These will be available for purchase at Collage Stuff this coming weekend.

I really like this alphabet sheet. I believe that there are two of every letter of the alphabet!

This sheet is full of small rose bouquets! More flower sheets will be available.

Meow! This is one of the new sheets of kittens! There is also a sheet of playful pups.
New butterflies! I like the blue ones!

Last but not least, this Halloween sheet. I love the scary pumpkins and the crone with her black cat. I have a very good supply of this style!
