365 Collages | Week 11 | Bambi came to visit

In my last post I blamed work and good weather. What shall I blame this time? Time being an escape artist perhaps? Because it is true, it really is. But also folks, don’t arrange a big swap in the middle of a 365 Art Project that you’re already behind with… Just don’t. But since I […]

Collage | A Whole New World

Collage | A Whole New World

Scraps by someone else

Scraps by someone else

Paper scraps are the Art Journalers and collageists best friends. We need scraps to create! It’s the treassures in our life, right?
