Spring Song

A new collage to welcome spring. This was done on a piece of pale gray scrap board. I used a rubber stamp in the background. The hand made papers are in shades if green and gold and the little bird is embellished with watercolor. This one is for sale in my Etsy shop.

Collage Cubes

In 2014 I did my 52 weeks of collage. For weeks 35 and 36, I collaged on wood cubes which was fun and a little different. One was given away for an art exchange so I purchased a few more cubes to do some new ones.

Below is one of the new collage cubes.  I painted the cube with acrylic paint and then used vintage postage stamps, antique documents, bits of old money and rubber stamps.

New addition to the flock

I have a new addition to my flock of birds. This one is from Ecuador and is similar to ones done by Ecuadorean silver artist Joaquin Tinta. Mine is unsigned but I like it anyway. You can find a bird for yourself on Etsy or Ebay.

New Collages

I've been working on some new collages. All are done on vintage Reader's Digest book covers - they're a nice size and the board is good for gluing. I used a variety of vintage papers, rubber stamps and hand made papers.

"Tell Me Little Boy"
"A bird sings of Italy"
"Classical Documents"
"Admit One"
