Fish Tale Soup

I forgot that I had this one in the archives...

Fish Tale Soup


Not sure if this will do but they are sort of big fish....

Did you ever see a Butter Fly?

The butter and farm were the original 60's advertisement. And that spooky shadow gramps would've been just right last week, but I added him anyway.

One More For The Road


This is actually for the scraps and shadow theme-this has mostly been made with scraps and there is one tiny use of "shadow"

New Theme - Larger Than Life

Remember the Tall Tale Postcards, with a gigantic ear of corn on a railcar or a huge fish atop a station wagon, which is as big as the car? That's the idea for the week. I've truly enjoyed my turn as theme thinker-upper, and appreciate your enthusiastic response!!

Scrap This Mess Around

Cut and Run

I love making collages out of scraps. I have a large box under my desk where I dump my paper leftovers at the end of the day.

Beyond a Shadow of...

The cow shadow shows up OK, but you'll have to look closer to see the man, talking to the woman under "retire to"... A shadow of his former self, but my, what a big eye he has!

New Theme - The Shadow Knows

Use Leftover scraps of scraps to create something new. Check the reverse side of pieces; you often find surprise images. And try to incorporate at least one "shadow"; that is, the silhouette left behind after something has been cut out.

for you

Red District

This is not the same red room I previously posted, by the way...


New Theme - Speaking in Monotones

Choose a color--maybe your favorite, maybe one you know you have lots of, maybe the first scrap you see... And create a piece in variations of that color. Easy-Peasy Lemon Squeezy, right?

A is for Art

Sorry, I have been making some new collages but none seem to fit this theme for some reason. Grasping at straws here! Angelica sent me this nice old pin-up in some scraps a while back and I've been meaning to use it in a collage for ages. Nice to finally get the chance.

The A list

I count at least 15 things here that start with the letter A. On your mark, get set, start guessing!

New Theme - A is For...

OK, Kids, what better way to start the new year than at the beginning? Show things that start with the letter A, illustrate an "A" word, or give it your own twist. And you know me-- Puns will earn you at least an A minus on this Assignment!
