Okay, I had to take some time off due to swapping and illness, but I'm baaa-ack!! Here's what I've been working on:

"Entertainment" - collage and ink


"A Starlit Wish" - collage & gel pens


"Life Abroad" - collage


"It's Worth It" - collage


So, what do you guys think? I know I need to branch out from collage, but I just like it. It relaxes me.

I really like the paradise bank card!  They are all wonderful.

And if you like collage, stick with it.  You can always add other stuff to it -- paint, stamps, whatever -- if you want.  But if it works and you feel good, don't worry about it!

oh your new ones are awesome.  I think collage is fine, it's a practiced art too Smiley

Nice job, love the "it's worth it" card

Thanks, guys. Collage is my favorite medium, probably mostly because I can't draw a straight line - ICLH!

I have been doing some experimenting with other things, but I'm a little leery of sharing them yet...


ETA: That card (It's Worth It) has a little tag attached to the hole in the top right corner - on one side it says "Vacation: $10,000" and on the other  it says "Beauty: Priceless". For some reason I can't get the tag to scan correctly.

Butterflie, nice work!

The "Paradise Bank" piece is made from offering paper, isn't it?

Morbid, but interesting.

I don't think it's offering paper. I got it in an ephemera swap; it was fake money.

It is offering paper, sometimes called joss paper.  You can read more about it here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joss_paper

I use it a lot in my work, but I understand how it would appear morbid to someone from a tradition that uses it for offerings.  I hope it doesn't offend anyone.

Oh my gosh, I thought it was just fake play money... Embarrassed I'm sorry if using it offends anyone in any way! Please, if it does let me know, and I will take the card off the page. Please don't let my ignorance bother you!!

Thanks for letting me know, Kat...

It's not just you -- if people are offended by your card, then they would be offended by a lot of mine and others as well.  A lot of people use joss paper in paper crafts.

I thought joss paper was something else...Why, I don't know. I honestly thought it was play money when I got it & when I used it. I've seen where others say they have used joss paper, but I'd never seen any that looked like money. Thanks for the info, and should I be concerned about using it in the future? Have you ever encountered anyone who was offended by its use?
