Collage: 8 little scenes

So I have really enjoyed collaging lately.... Now there's an understatement! I have been going nuts collaging lately. And having a blast. Here are eight little 5" x 7" collages, though I have worked in sizes larger and smaller.

The last one here was the first one I did. I had become inspired while being a little bored during the lulls at a market one day, so went looking for a magazine, then pulled out my scissors.... The result was this wee little collage that I wasn't even aware was finished, when someone asked to buy it. Sweet!!

The rest, as they say, is history. Life is currently a flurry of small pieces of paper everywhere, bits of glue on my fingertips, and creations that amaze me.....

Collage: Grand Adventure sendoff

A couple of weeks ago I started collaging, and haven't stopped since! This is a wee one I did as a surprise for a young couple I met who are off shortly for a bike trip across Canada. Katie and Dylan were thrilled with the front (above), but especially surprised by the back, as it turns out that Dylan is a huge fan of Walt Whitman (quoted on the back, below). They plan to take it on their trip and use it as a bookmark.
Expect to see much more about collaging here soon....
