Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all! Here's to a healthy and happy 2013! Here is my latest collage, just finished yesterday titled "At The Stroke of Midnight"

Thursday, December 20, 2012

Now I know I don't write much on here, but to me "A picture is worth a thousand words" whoever said that! They say you have to be teaching something or people won't come back! Well, I think photos are so wonderful and I am a very visual person! If you are too then I think you will enjoy my blog. I am always looking for that next great image and love taking photos. Here is a photo I took when I was in Chicago on 12-13-12 of a beautiful old lantern at the Fourth Presbyterian Church of Chicago located on Michigan Ave across from Water Tower Place. I like the contrast between the modern Water Tower building in the background and the beautiful ornate antique lantern!

Merry Christmas!!!

Is there anything more wonderful than a day in Chicgo at Christmas time!? I went to Chicago last Thursday 12-6-12 and spent the day at Macy's. Lunch at the Walnut Room having the famous pot pie and Frango ice cream pie! Shopping for ornaments and a box of Frango mints! Here are some photos of the beautiful tree in the Walnut room.

Bling Boy!

I just love this little dog from the COACH ad! Reminds me of "Uggie" from the movie "The Artist". I created him with a lot of bling around his neck with floating polka dots all around him.

Mellow Yellow

My latest Couture Collage "Mellow Yellow". I'm into yellow and blue right now so I have also recently done another collage called "Blue" These are so fun to create and I never really know where I will end up! This collage has images from Maybelline ads, Christmas paper, jewelry ads and shoes from Vogue and Elle. I start my collages by adding a background color with acrylic paint, then add the border from various scrapbook paper and other papers.

Happy Valentine's Day Collage

Well, I know Ground Hog Day is first, but I am not too inspired by ground hogs! I love red and have been saving a lot of red images for a new collage. Valentine's day is a very RED holiday so perfect for this new collage. I found a lot of Barbie magazines at a church sale so that's where I got that image. Didn't even know Barbie had her own magazine.

Happy New Year 2012!

Happy New Year to you all! This is my latest collage inspired by the new year! I included some images that have special meaning to me. I am going to London and Paris in October so I included the Eiffel Tower. The little dog at the bottom looks like my sister's dog "Casper". The top hat and bow tie gives him a festive holiday look! The M is for my last name, the shiny world ornament for my future travels!

I used a lot of images this time from Pottery Barn catalogs and the clocks remind me of the new year, plus I like the image of clock faces. I search a lot of fashion magazines and catalogs and save the images that catch my eye. Have a great new year!

Happy Halloween!
