Amazing photo collage

My husband loves photography and subscribes to Shutterbug. On the front cover of this month's issue is the greatest photo collage by jerry Uelsmann. He does the collage old school - without the computer. His collages really draw me in and invoke a visceral, emotional response. Take a look at his website: http://www.uelsmann.net/

Mail Art challenge

I LOVE mail art! It's so much fun to get a piece of decorated mail. It doesn't even matter what's inside! And it's fun to decorate envelopes too! I'm much freer with my art when it's going thru the mail. I can pull out stamps that rarely get used, and use colors I don't normally use and just go with the flow! My whimsical side seems to come out and play. Why don't you give it a try?? pull out those markers and stamps and crayons and decorate your mail. It will surely put a smile on the recipient's face!

So, last night, I was looking around my very messy house and thinking that I should really start cleaning up. So I gathered some of my art supplies which had accumulated on the kitchen table and took them to my studio. I'm not really sure what happened next, but a few hours later, I emerged from my studio with this really fun shabby chic banner. Unfortunately, when I woke up this morning the house was still a mess! Where are those cleaning fairies when you need them!

Anyway, I got to play with some of my favorite materials: antique glass glitter, vintage inspired paper, vintage fabric and lace, and beautiful ribbon.

The banner reads CELEBRATE and would look lovely in any shabby chic room, and is perfect for any girl or woman's birthday or to welcome a baby girl or for a baby shower! Or I might just decide to keep it and hang it in my studio.

I need to decorate a beautiful hat box to put it in, and then I'll probably list it on ETSY. If I don't decide to keep it...
