Hi. You know me. Miss 'I'll be there in a minute, or tomorrow, or I may have to wait until after payday.'
Yes, you know me. Miss 'It's due Monday? I'll send it three days from now if that's okay.'
YOU KNOW ME: Miss, 'Glue It Tuesday?!!?!? But I haven't continued my 365 Collages in 2013 Projects, and when I do, it will be on MY terms, at MY convenience, and when I CAN GET out of MY bed!'
(Just WHAT are you doing in bed so much, Miss let me talk a lot about myself while other people have better things to do?)
Aimee, at Artsyville, doesn't have any problem at all with people posting their Glue It Tuesdays on Wednesday. That's what I love about her. Also: everything else she does.
Okay, here are the latest collages. I have been saving this Easter-egg-dyed coffee filter for three years. Didn't know what to do with it. Now, I do:
Color Garden is collaged onto one of those woven liners that comes with flower bouquets at Trader Joe's. They are very porous, and it happens that they do not want to stick to their page very easily. They also don't want other things to stick to them very easily. So, this was a bit of a challenge, but finally things stuck (hand it to Elmer's!).
Because I had such success with the fiber flower liner above, I decided to use a piece of orange vellum for the next one. I don't know if you've ever worked with vellum, but if you have, I don't have to tell you, but...
Stuff didn't want to stick. It's probably my fault. I refuse to use E6000 in my collage journal. Or anything else toxic. Maybe some Liquitex gel medium, which claims to be toxic, but which has never made me sick after licking my fingers.
So, here's the vellum page. I found a cool image on a Trader Joe's wine wrapper and I had to use it. Because we have 'an agreement'.
Wine For Health
Thank goodness THAT part of the post is over! Because NOW, I have to tell you...
I got a wonderful piece of mail art from Dawn! Look at this postcard!
Dawn, of Girl Unwinding, and I agreed to swap postcards! Isn't this pretty? And it feels pretty! It has great texture and richness.
One day, I may send her one in return.
Next up: Chris celebrates her 40th birthday 16 years late, and AARP renegs on some benefits.
Late Note!-- It's not really my birthday! I was just making a joke...
