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.

Just wanted to share a quick post with a new bird cage collage.

Gears and Cogs and Watch Parts, Oh My!

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.

For Lenore…..

Thursday, August 23rd, 2012

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 :)

A Mermaid’s Tale

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

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 :)

I’m Stuck on You

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

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.

Tim says “Make it Work!”

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

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.

Do Fairies Eat Jello?

Friday, February 3rd, 2012

Awhile ago at an antique shop I picked up a stack of vintage Jello mould tins and have been staring at them trying to figure out what to make. Here’s my first idea, I turned them on their sides and put captured fairies in them with a ribbon loop at the top to hang them from. I added some vintage paper at the back and some faux grass at their feet. I think they turned out pretty sweet.
