I belong to the Paper Whimsey Yahoo Group dedicated to using Gail Blair's Paper Whimsey
images and the art that can be created using her fabulous collage sheets (check out her website to purchase collage sheets---no affiliation, I just love them!!). Every month Gail offers a challenge. If you take her up on the challenge and send her a SASE she will send you back a few goodies to be used in a 5x5 piece. The rules are pretty simple---use all the pieces she sends and follow the chosen theme. You can use other things in your collage as long as you use all of the items that were sent to you. At the end of the challenge one of the pieces is selected as the favorite (I'm not sure who chooses) and the artist who created the selected piece receives 3 collage sheets of her choice as a prize!! This is the first time I have entered the challenge and the theme this month was "Memories". Above is a pix of the collage goodies I received and my finished collage. I'd love to win those collage sheets!!!

This is another example of the Magaine/Gesso Technque. This one is a bit bigger (6X6 on matboard---frame is just for fun from Flickr Toys not really part of the real piece!). The original image was from a magazine ad for Paloma Picaso cosmetics and fragrance. I am having way too much fun!!! Have a happy and creative day!

My charms from the Art Unraveled Yahoo group arrived last week. This scan does not do them justice. I love every one of them and I can't wait to meet all of the participants from this swap when I attend Art Unraveled 2007 this summer. I still am expecting to receive charms from another swap I participated in on the International Charm Exchange group---I can't wait for them to arrive. These swaps are so much fun! I love working on the charms (almost as much as I love working on the 1x1's!!). I will post the next group as soon as I receive them!
