collages 34-40

I had a great weekend.  My best friend visited, we had another birthday dinner with friends (Dan believes in celebrating birthday month) and I found a little time to be creative.  I worked on my 365 challenge and got on a real role.

#34/365 - Open Heart
handpainted papers, corrugated cardboard, scrapbook paper and tissue hearts

#35/365 - In the Pink

a heart made of postage stamps on green tissue with a frame of my decorated papers

#36/365 - Flying Stitches
miscellaneous magazine pics covered with pattern tissue

#37/365 - Tissue
all tissue papers 

#38/365 - Lightly Gardened
only tissue paper til I found the magazine text that seems to define it

#39/365 - Gentle Heart
tissue papers layered over book text and a floral napkin as the focal heart

#40/365 - Text in Read
this one was fun - I looked for only red text in my huge stash (that I don't use enough) and as I hunted, it started to tell a story for me......starting with 'my kind of town - Seattle' and grew from there

Are you joining Hanna and others in the 365 challenge?  What are you making?

    You definitely were on a roll! Glad to hear you're having so much fun :).
    Stay inspired!

  2. the word one is so much fun. I used to make similar small collages to hang inside my high school locker every year. I wonder what happened to them - it would be fun to see what words were significant to me then, and if any would be the same now. you've got me itching to try this. you are such a wonderful and reliable source of inspiration!
