Digital collages

So with this whiplash-inducing change in the weather I'm feeling hot and lazy. What better way to make art during a heat wave than to sit at the computer next to the lovely air conditioning vent? I made these out of scans from my train book and some sewing and knitting directions and diagrams. I notice that my colors suddenly got quite a bit brighter - partly because of the source scans and partly because of the weather, I guess.

Some pretty for your Wednesday

Making treasuries is a good way to avoid going outside where it's gone from March to July in a couple days. I love hot weather and summer but I need a little time to acclimate. Anyway, here's some lovely things that I think have fantastic compositions.

Happy 4th!

I've been offline and out of the studio quite a bit lately, between migraines and a sick horse. I think we're both on the mend, though.

Hope everyone's having a good 4th of July! Or if you're not in the US I'll just wish you a happy Sunday :) My evening will be spent reassuring the animals that war has not broken out and it's just fireworks.
