A Couple of Fun Collages...

I worked on two collages this week, each very different, but made with all kinds of found goodies and junk!  The first is a dog collage (can you tell I love dogs...) and is made of all vintage ephemera and junk- hardware, letters, buckles, etc.  The second is a more romantic piece made from vintage ephemera, a few scans of vintage ephemera, and vintage goodies- millinery flowers, lace and ribbons, hardware, and a vintage glass piece off of a clock.  I did these on canvas, but will probably use canvasboard in the future for easier framing.  They are a lot of fun to work on!

something. I love collages, bits and pieces put together
to make a story, many stories. Thanks for sharing!!! Posted: 5:09 pm on March 11th
