Works in Progress

These three spreads are the insides of three books I am making. I am taking an interesting class from Roxanne Stout.  Each of these pieces is 16" long by 6" high.  On a couple of these there will be more pages sewn in and the other side will be collages- when closed this is a 5 1/4" square.  I used Gelli prints for the backgrounds.

I wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Every year at this time I do a gratitude list and it is very long.

Another Digital One

This is another digital collage and actually the last all digital one I have done in some time.  This one like the last one uses images from Tumble Fish Studios.  The background is a scan of a Gelli print I did.  The title is: The Development of Illumination.  This is deep with meaning for me- hope you can enjoy making up your own stories about this one.
Right now I am taking another online class.  This one is from Roxanne Stout- a wonderful mixed-media artist.  I am not following the assignments exactly but I am loving the class- it's really an artists book class.  I am doing lots of collage and hope to share that soon here.

This collage is totally digital.  I made this a couple of months ago when I was dealing with some things that were hard for me.  The idea came that friends can be like lifeboats to rescue us when we are down or going through hard times.  While this does remind me of the hard place I was at the time it is also a comfort to know I have dear friends in my life that really are my lifeboats.  The imagery for this whole collage is all from Marsha Salyer Jorgenson- she owns Tumble Fish Studios(well I did do  the Gelli print background that you can hardly see).

The Last of the Postcards

This is the last batch.  I had fun and it helped when I just dumped a whole box of my collage stuff on the table and started picking images that caught my eye.  It really was a lot of fun.  have a great weekend everyone.

Final Collage Class Project

The final project for the collage class was to make collage postcards to mail to each participating class member.  I made 19 of those and they are all very different from one another.  This was a fun class and the people in the class were great- so much talent and different approaches.  I tried some collage techniques that I would not have on my own.  It's been fun to go to the mailbox and see art in it.  I always have liked mail art and this was a great way to end the class.
