My first post.
I like to make monsters and I like containers so I combined the two.




I am a painter first and foremost and have been experimenting with collage:








What can I say, I like creepy things.

The original purse was just like cream colored vinyl or something and shiny so I glued, with elmers school glue, on a few things I liked from mostly National Geographic. It is difficult to tell, at least I hope, what is painted and what is the magazine but a lot of the purse is handpainted with acrylic+textile medium and I went over the whole thing with modge podge. I'm so glad you like it!!

I love the painted/collaged purse!
Especially the front, with the trees. The colours are fabulous.

A facility for quotation covers the absence of original thought.

I agree with everyone else...this is fantastic!  I've used iron-on photo paper to put images on my bags before, but never thought about adhering paper images to a bag with glue.  Too cool!

And hoping for an early death you swam so far you lost your breath, and struggling in the ebb and flow I took your hand, but you let go...
And now the ocean fills your lungs, and now you've got what you had come for, resting peaceful as you sink to drown under a sea of strangers.

-E. Bachmann
