Drool,Sweat,Dizzy and Tears

Some weeks ago Dear Sweet Kj from http://karenjasper.blogspot.com/ wrote a post about "K",a friend in need of some of funds to help with college...to read the post click "here"...well I asked if it would be alright if I auctioned off one of my ACEO's to help with K ...I created this ACEO,and it will be going up on auction tonight on Ebay.

Be sure to check it out "Here"!!

"Wishes and Dreams for K" #359 Created using layers of paper and ephemera,a vintage reprint,swarovski crystals,rub-ons and a final layer of beeswax.



My fingers have not created mixed media in some time and after creating this card I was inspired to keep going and in doing so my flame for collage began to burn again.

                            "Together" #360 Mixed Media Collage ACEO with layer of Beeswax


"Take a Chance" Doll Assemblage




After playtime I started thinking about the Artists that inspired me when I first started falling in love with the idea of Collage, almost 10 years ago now.

Brilliant minds like..
                                                                      Hannah Hock

Raoul Housmann


Robert  Rauschenberg


These,along with so many others, make me drool,sweat,swear,feel dizzy,laugh with joy and sometimes they even make me cry..Isn't that what its all about. 
What makes you Cry?..and sweat and drool?



As always,
thank you so much for stopping by

Beauty, in any form, brings me to tears. Gerald Butler, tee hee, makes me drool! What were we saying about fires being lit?????

Your art is just wonderful. As to what makes me cry - just about everything. I'm not kidding about that. I was stopping by because I wanted to wish you a happy new year and thank you for being a follower of my blog. It means a lot to me. Thank you. May your new year be filled with laughter, more joy than sorrow, peace, and wisdom. Blessings to you. Happy new year!
