Inner Reaching

When I go to Goodwill I look for canvases that I can use to practice my painting on.  I was given some gesso as a gift(thank you R.L.!) and I just use it to cover the old painting.  Recently I found a canvas that had been preprinted that was 30″ by 38″ and I instantly knew what I wanted to put on it.  So I bought it and brought it home.  It is a good and common practice to create “rough drafts” of art before one starts on the actual product, so I made this!  I have not yet started on the actual painting but this collage helped me to find the feeling and the image I was going for.  My next step is to do thumbnails of my image to find the color scheme I want to use.  After that I can go to work on the canvas.  I can’t wait!  ❤



Disco Star Wars – collage

I made this collage with a computer way back when I was in high school.  It has always been a favorite of mine.  I didn’t find out until many years later that there is actually music to go with it!  ❤

Images and characters do not belong to me.


Temptation – collage

I recently got myself some modge podge for paper and I made a random collage to test it out.  I didn’t realize until it was done that I created a sort of narrative picture.  I know how it related to my own life at the time I made it.

What do you think is happening in this image?  ❤

Not All Who Wander – collage

A little while ago I got myself a new sketchbook to kick start my new journey through art.  Some of the first images in it were made by collaging images from magazines.  Here is the first image I made.  Perhaps it is something of a self portrait?  ❤

I cannot claim to own the individual images, and since I don’t have the magazines anymore, don’t know who really owns them.  They came from multiple sources.



Dream Wedding Collage

Hello again!  A few months ago a friend told me she was getting married and I was instantly inspired to design a dress for her.  It wasn’t something she had asked for or had to choose, but I thought it would be fun anyway.


It was made with scrap book paper and magazine pages.  I also added a few details with some gold gel pen.

Can’t you just see it as a fun fairy tale wedding dress?  Complete with a castle?  ❤
