Collaged Gluebooks, Lens awarded purple star

Just had to brag about my latest purple star award from squidoo.

A little while ago I wrote about collaged gluebooks on a squidoo lens; this has now been recognised with a very much sought after award ( on sqsuidoo) - a purple star. I am over the moon. I always knew it was a good lens but never seemed to do very well in the site rankings. I am terrible at SEO and those other boring things which get your websites found on google. Antway, I feel vindicated.

Friends who know my work may recognise some of these images from books I have created, but if you would like to see more read the lens, collaged gluebooks or view my photostream on flickr.

 Great fun to make and easy for kids on a rainy day. Any sort of book you like, a stick of glue or similar and a few magazines. Why not have a go yourself? You know it makes sense!

ATC collages in the style of PG GRAVELE

It has been a very long time since my last post. Mainly due to the issues of dealing with my MIL's estate after her passing away. I hope that I can now resume my artwork where I left off. The first post will be to show off a couple of artist trading cards which I have made in the sstyle of PG Gravele whose work I wrote about in the last post.

I entered a challenge on Paper Digital Art and Images by Kim and used Gravele's style to create a background to a short word as the theme was text. In both cases the title was the text on the card.

Unfortunately the images are not terribly good, taken late at night in poor light. I will try to get better photos which show off the metallic foil in the atc's and replace them.
