Feeling random...

I'm calling these my random collages. They're full of bits of this and that from estate sales, magazines, fabric, notions and other ephemera that I've always loved and treasured. Some pieces are old, some new, and they've all been waiting for a new home. I started going through my vintage stuff getting a packet ready for this swap (hope you'll join in!) and realized the extent of stuff I've collected that I've never used in my art. I decided it's time to bring these little gems out into the sunlight and let them shine and inspire throughout my day:) This lovely lady (above) is by Laini's Ladies, check out all the goodies here. Oh my, and she has a blog!! I actually bought this as a Valentine's present for my mom and when I got it home it just seemed too perfect for the page. Yes mom, I'll be sure and go buy another!
So as you can see, my little craft space had already changed considerably from earlier in the week. Love that it's so organic and changes on a whim! These collages were inspired in no small part by the following art. Hula Seventy's collage is so vibrant and energizing..
Lia just posted this collage that I totally love!!

....and VERY inspired by Alicia's collages here.
