New Member - Vivienne Strauss

Let us welcome our newest member and my friend, Vivienne Strauss, to Scrapiteria!

Melba Had Never Felt so Underdressed or Under-garnished, No One Had Told Her it Was Going to be a Ritz-y Affair

I've been doing various forms of collage for over 10 years and am in a constant state of finding my collage "style". I've been inspired by the Dada artists, Ray Johnson, and a lot of people on Flickr including Angelica Paez, Michelle Lanter, Crafty Dogma, Eopna Art and many others. I've recently enjoyed working with vintage camera images and finding "life" in inanimate objects. This collage is not typical for me but as soon as I saw the theme of using scraps it freed my mind to do something different and extra silly.
