You definitely put the fun in collage and mixed media. Your cards come together in joyous union. And of course, I'm a big fan of magazine images, too.

Andrea, I just read your comment on my calendar pages. I confess, I'm probably one of the most "low maintenance" gals who makes these calendars. So many people put SO much effort into them. I've tried, and the little bit of decorating I do is minimal. Even the days of the week are cut from an existing calendar, because after the first month I learned I had made an extra week. I decided never again.

I also discovered you don't have to write a complete dissertation because the boxes I use are so small, anyway. I applaud you for trying it one month. When I first started, I didn't think I would get through the second month (after the first month's disaster). Now it's become habit. And if I forget a square one day, I can write in what was important the next day. I have found I actually don't mind it, although I found it much easier to write on the pages when they were in book form.

Thanks so much for your sweet comment.

Love your collages! You really have an eye for fun and quirky combinations. also am a fan of Dale Chihuly, so the images from that brochure are intriguing...

Andria...Your ICAD collages are wonderful..."Fresh Start" is my favorite...but they are all great!!! I can't believe I'm still making them and I'm going on with them through July.

I love it when you use your lettering skills on these cards!! And the tomato one is probably my favorite, even though it doesn't have your lettering. (irony.) I want to do a swap soon. Maybe one of my icads for one of yours? I don't know. So much going on all the time and I am a poor time manager sometimes! But this isn't about me probably.
Happy 4th!
