Well, if you follow my blog at all you know that I was MIA for a long time...before this hiatus, I was involved in many things, I wrote a quarterly zine, keep up a blog, and many other things and a lot of this was before Facebook and Instagram.

I lost touch with many of my dear artsy friends, well one night when I moved my studio, I found a bunch of business cards.  I started looking for my peeps and found many of them on FB.  Some have passed or I just can't find but I did find a good friend from Australia! That friend is Kylie and we got to chatting again and have decided to share artwork.

We have decided on 4" x 4" collages and here is my first collage. It is on heavy cardstock, book page that was inked with Distress vintage photo ink, buttons, Tim Holtz paper dolls and big chat words and some Franken paper made with friends from Ohio.

Prompt 1 Circles from the FB page The Stencilfied Journal more to come! Stencil from Stencil Girl.

Made some Franken paper with some art friends then cut it into ATCs.  This was really fun to do and had many layers involved.

Been working small to get back into being creative, here are some art coins (2 1/2" round) and ATCs (artist trading cards 2 1/2" x 3 1/2").

Junk Postcards

I have a tendency to use whatever I have on hand...old magazines, papers, images, etc...I created a bunch of postcards from items I had laying around. Here are a few of them, I did quite a few and then sent them out to family and friends.

Twenty years ago when my kids were small, I stayed home with them, I didn't have money for supplies such as rubber stamps, pretty papers, embossing powders, etc..I made due with what I had, I am thankful for this as I think it has made me a better artist today...I can use almost anything and create something!
