Perilious Vacations #4

Alice had heard they had come up with a new way to avoid overcrowding at the beach, but this was a bit drastic!

Collage Supply Shopping In Ann Arbor

I spent the day in Ann Arbor shopping for collage supplies. First, I went to the Ann Arbor Antique Market in Saline. Last spring, I had thought the market was downsized from previous years, but this fall it was even worse. It is held on the farm council grounds, and there was only one tent of antiques and only four of the barns were occupied with vendors. I did find some vintage women's magazines and a handful of travel postcards, though, so I was happy.

Then I went to Found in KerryTown where I picked up some children's coloring activity books, a vintage stamp of a cat, and the cutest black and white photo of a couple sunbathing. The store was having a sale, so I got a lot more bang for my buck!

She Still Believed In Old Fashioned Romance

My latest collaged contact paper transfer. I used decorative paper for the background, magazine clippings for the girl and the retro images came from vintage magazines.

Perilious Vacations

I'm working on a new collage set called "Perilous Vacations" where I'm taking vintage travel postcards and introducing a collaged element peril to the poor vacationers. I feel a little bad about altering the vintage postcards, especially the ones with writing on the back.

Geisha ATC

I made this Geisha collage ATC set for a dear friend as a gift. I think the colors turned out quite well, and I'm so pleased that she liked them.
