I’m adding lots of fun Halloween items to my Etsy shop like these collages done on vintage Bingo cards.
Are you a good witch or a bad witch?
Instead of a black cat these young witches have a black dog.
Here’s a couple of Steampunk themed collages I made recently. They both use a cool steampunk girl stamp from Sweet Pea stamps. The larger collage is on a vintage Bingo card with metal gears and cogs, move-able clock hands, it’s hanging from wire on metal grommets with a key charm.
The Art Card is on a reproduction small Bingo card that says Woman’s Auxiliary Air Force, it also has a metal gear.
They are both currently avilabe in my Etsy Shop.
For this collage I used the raven and skull stamp from Inkadinkado on vintage book paper, it’s embellished with a binder clip and ink pen nib that’s dripping ink. The bottom border is black mesh ribbon, crepe paper and an embossed metal plate that says “nevermore”. I tied some hemp string with a hand and heart charm around the plate. I almost didn’t want to sell it I love it so much but I’ve listed it in my Etsy shop
Continuing with an ocean theme, I made this mermaid collage. I’ve done lots of collage art with fairies inside jars and I thought why not a mermaid? So I turned the jar on it’s side and put actual sand in the bottom. I also added a background of vintage inspired map paper, a label, some actual small sea shells and a real working compass. Then I wrapped the entire canvas in some netting. I love how it turned out. I need to think of more things to capture in jars
This collage is currently available in my Etsy shop.
I found the cutest little canvas boards at the craft store a few weeks ago! I’ve used the larger sizes for a long time and was thrilled to find these mini ones. I personally like boards instead of stretched canvas for a lot of projects, they are sturdy and ”firm”, you don’t have that sagging in the middle of a regular canvas.
I thought they were the perfect size for magnets so I made a couple of birds and a fairy one too. Perfect for a little art on your fridge or file cabinet.
These are currently available in my Etsy Shop.
Wanted to share a couple of William Blake inspired collages I made recently. I love this quote!
The first one is available in my Etsy shop, the smaller one has sold already.
Here’s my latest collage piece inspired by Tim Gunn’s famous Project Runway quote: “Make it Work!”. The painted wooden tag in the middle has a paper dress with a tiny vintage button that’s hanging on a little wire hanger with a paper tag. I used a lot of vintage sewing items to embellish it like part of a tape measure, spool and wooden clothes pin. The background paper is vintage music sheet.
