My collage contains some of my favourite things in the world. A good cup of coffee, a decent book, NURSING(!), pretty flowers, and patterns combining blues & greens. I was a big too eager to stick on my photos and I have lots of air pockets. However, I'm choosing to call it texture.

I hate to brag or anything, but I rarely get bored. There is always something to be done. I haven't been bored in years in fact. Not so with my 10-year-old. Her best girlfriends are away & boredom threatens to overtake her if we are not diligent. So I've been trying to create things for us to do. A few weeks ago we visited a friend's art studio & gallery. We were inspired to make collage art. Not quite was she was exhibiting, but the project kept us busy for a few hours this week. I sacrificed some of my Martha Stewart and other magazines to the cause. We used small canvases, painted them with acrylic pains, and Modge Podge to stick everything together and make the surface shiny.
