New Valentine Cards

I created two new Valentine cards this year. The first one is letterpress printed from calligraphy I did a few years ago. It's printed on a nice pearlescent paper.

The second card is printed from vintage wood letterpress type. I was trying to get away from having every Valentine's card red and pink so I printed this one in red and aqua. I've always liked this color combination. It's blank inside so could be used for other occasions.

Both cards are available in my Etsy shop.

Collages - Weeks 3 and 4

Here is the collage for week 3. It was done on a cover from an old Reader's digest and incorporates an antique postcard from Hungary, vintage wall paper, a butterfly print and rubber stamps.

Next is the collage for this week - week 4. It was also done on an old Reader's Digest book cover. Other elements include a vintage business card with a Japanese-looking fan, handmade paper and stamp from India, rubber stamps and vintage paper scraps.

I think I'm caught up in my weeks. Next week will be week 5 and collage no.5!

A New Year

So, it's a new year. Not sure where last year went....One of my goals in 2014 is to create a collage a week. 52 collages, and I will post them here. So, here is week one. This is a mini collage, done on canvas. It incorporates vintage music, a vintage bit of advertising and some decorative papers.
Collage Week 1
And here is week number two. This collage was done on an antique postcard from 1909. I've combined vintage wallpaper, a bit of ledger paper, a Chinese character, rubber stamping and a scrap of letterpress border.
