Collage Obsession: Bride



I'm glad Halloween is tomorrow, because I'm ready to move on from the dark, creepy collages I've been creating! Here's the last one, for Collage Obsession's theme of "Bride."

Digital Whisper: Web


This is for the Digital Whisper challenge, a new one I'm participating in. The web image was from Google search, the patterns are mine. I applied many filters/effects/blending modes, some by accident :)

Sunday Postcard Art: "Monster Mash!"

I remember this song well! And there was a dance to go along with it. Here are my monster-y ladies doing their version of it. Image credits: magazineart.org (altered).

Sunday Postcard Art: Spooky

I can hardly believe it's October already! Sunday Postcard Art has challenged us to make "spooky" art. Here's my attempt.


"Order of the Opus Gluei" challenge: Time

During my break, I started creating mini-collages with some of my Gelli prints (they were taking over my house!). So I thought I'd enter a couple of "hands-on" art challenges in addition to digital ones. This one is for the "Opus Gluei" challenge theme of "Time."
The collage was hand-created with altered map and clock images, Gelli print strips, and altered chipboard for the dimensional clock. I added the word "Time" digitally.

I'm Back! Presenting Collage Obsession: Diva

I'm finally back after my long break. I missed my online friends so much that I just had to jump back into the challenges after my busy summer. I decided, however, not to continue on the design teams for Collage Obsession and Soartful. This will give me more time to devote to the hands-on art I've been doing lately, in addition to participating in some of the digital challenges again. Thanks to all my blogging friends who kept in touch with me!

Here's my collage for this week's Diva challenge at the newly revived Collage Obsession site. Thank you, Kirsi, for keeping this challenge going. We were given the image of the woman, and I added the animals (divas themselves, apparently) and other touches.
