A couple of recent collages

Morning Buzz - This ATC has a couple of image transfers done with acrylic gel medium, hand drawn coffee cup using Prisma Colored Pencils, some vintage text from a french book, and other text were used in the background. I inked around the edges with distressed inks.

The inspiration for this ATC came from the cigar label at the bottom of the card that was gifted to me in a trade from a lady who found a bunch of cigar labels at a flee market. Oh how I wish we had flee markets up here in Alaska - The treasures you can find. It has the word Java on it and I liked the chocolatey color of the label.

Jersey Girl- had a piece of dictionary text that was gifted to me in a swap, and I noticed it had this cow on it. Before I knew it, I've got the elements for a Country Fair Prize winning Dairy Cow!!

I like the little stamped fairy dancer lady reaching for the jug of milk! I used an image transfer of the hand pointing to the blue ribbon. And painted a little chipboard frame that was also gifted to me in a trade.

  1. I absolutely love the Jersey Girl. It brings me good memories from years ago that really haven't a thing to do with cows but still I associate them with the good events. The word 'voisin', right above the little fairy is French for neighbor. I find it quite delightful that a fairy and a cow would be neighbors.
    I'd love to have this card in my collection!
