Alpha Stamps' theme for May is Springtime in Paris. Ah, so romantic.


I'm not all that sappy, though, so I took a bit of a different tact. One of the collage sheets we were given is "Paris Postcards", which have reduced images of actual vintage postcards of France. I collect vintage postcards, so I really love this collage sheet. The colors and images are really wonderful. I decided to mount them on some artist trading blocks and other wooden blocks that I painted and then sanded. My original plan was to add other elements on top of the images for a Paris collage, but I loved the way the blocks looked with just the postcards on them, and I just couldn't bear to cover them up.

Enter Clarence. He just couldn't help photobombing every single shot.


I don't know...it just cracks me up.


I did at least collage the backs of the blocks. (More photos on my blog.)


But I prefer Clarence.

I have a Clarence from racky, but he is always looking at me adoringly. These show his fun side.  Cheesy

Clarence. What a gas! Is he headed somewhere else, and we can expect random Clarence pics from far away places?  Cheesy
I'd love to see more of him!
