Vintage postcards that I picked up at antique stores came in handy for this collage featuring 'handwriting.'  I added used teabags for some age; other marks were done with charcoal pencil.

Here's a collage I did for the Collage Obsession "Steampunk" challenge.
Go to to see other great collages.

New ATC's

These are for an Asian-themed swap.  My son lives in Japan, so I have plenty of fodder for this subject.
I covered the background with a teabag;
watercolors also used.


Watercolor pencils, micro pen

Getting Back to It!

How's that saying go?  Life is what happens while you're making other plans?  Or something like that ... anyway, my blog has suffered while I dealt with the holidays, etc.  So I'm getting back into the swing, and here are some little "masterpieces" I've been working on.

Some journal doodling in the style of Traci Bautista

For the Creative Souls "France" postcard swap.
This is done with acrylic paints and ink.

These three little guys are for the MMSA "Cats" swap.  Just some little sketches done with pen and ink.

And these are ATC's I did for the MMSA "Stamp Heads" swap ... you get the idea ... this was a fun one!
