More Zines!

One from a visit from my high school girlfriends... It is so awesome to have them still!
As you can see, I used some of the papers I made in the last post.

 And then Maggie's 2 year Maggie-zine!


This collage is one that I made awhile ago but let sit because I didn't feel it was complete. Looking at it again, I am not sure what I would add... so here it is!


I was getting tired of the stack of papers that I had to pull from in my crafting stash and the Archiver's store went out of business here in Denver not leaving too many options for unique papers. I decided to make my own. Here is a sampling:

Forget me Not

Oddly Ironic... I forgot that I made these. It was a subconscious effort from the beginning I suppose. Another shot at a Valentine card... for no other reason than it was the season and there are hearts on them.

Royal Secrets

These were the closest I got to making Valentine's cards this year. They have the appropriate amount of hearts curly/frilly things and X's and O's so I think they pass the Valentine's test. I especially like the softness of the color pallet in combination with the soft curves of the lady. Enjoy!

Man and Beast

Looking back through my flash drive archives and I realized that I haven't posted here since late last summer. Picking back up from where I left off... I made these gems in October, right before Halloween though I don't believe I had any specific intention to combine Man and Beast for the holiday. A lot of the background material for these came from "Office Ephemera" meaning I cut out pictures from junk mail I received at work and used the insides of security envelopes. I am amazed at how many different pieces of paper pass over my desk that I am inspired to incorporate into collages.
