Formative Years...


The first album I bought was Kiss "Alive". Used to get cherry Cokes at the lunch counter of the sundries store downtown, a half-mile walk. You could also buy greeting cards & household needs, browse the magazine racks, get your hunting license & tag your deer there. And while my first ones were Miller High-Life (years after Cub Scouts), I've now graduated to drinking beer.

Theme of the Week - Your Youth

I want to see some collages that deal with your youth. How you dressed, what you read, the music you listened to, what you were into in general. This one might date us, but it should be fun! Now where did I leave those old Tiger Beat mags?

Sorry for being so tardy in getting back here but have been busy getting well and doing some Spring cleaning. I have given up my Flickr stream and just on Treemo for the moment, though that may change. I have some new mail art projects on the boil which some of you might like to take part in.

The "LET YOUR POSTCARDS DO THE WALKING" is a similar to the "HANDY POSTCARD EXCHANGE" of a few years ago - only this time you have to draw round your bare foot( or feet ) onto some thin card and then decorate it whichever way you fancy - collage, rubber stamp, drawing, watercolour etc. Some examples here at the the blog I've just started to display the work sent in-

I hope this gives you some ideas. Hopefully an exhibition is planned for March 2008 - so thats the deadline for entries. Send as many as you want. Everyone gets a foot shaped card from me in exchange. Possible catalogue if I can raise the funding from the local arts body. Have fun!

Thanks for all the fine GET WELL collages. I was very touched that you should think of me.

Rest & Recuperation

Take in a good book, drink your hot tea, and don't forget the chicken soup. Feel better Michael! Scrapiteria is a lonely place without you. :-(

Theme of the Week - The Camera

Say cheese! I don't think we have done a camera theme yet. If we have, please let me know. Let's see what develops with this one.
