Here is my latest collage. Had to take little break from pink! I love my pink, but once in a while I like to do something different. I am such a lucky girl- I joined my first swap with the most talented ladies!! It's a tag swap and we each make and recieve 12 tags, so the good mail just keeps coming for days!! I could definitely get addicted to this swapping thing! I have already signed up for two more because it's just so fun!! It's also making me try things I haven't tried before, but have been wanting to. So my new addictions are collage art, ATCs, and swaps! I better start selling some of my work to pay for the supplies!! What are you addicted to? I know without asking that most of you reading my blog are addicted to the same things! :D

I love the collage you created....VERY pretty :) How fun your tag swap sounds...I've got a couple coming up myself, too. But, hubby says maybe I should get some selling done as well as swapping...he's right, gotta work on that! lol

I love that collage! I am also addicted to swaps.....and like you, I love how it puts me in a different space artistically than if I were just creating for myself or family and friends. It stretches me more than normally. btw...Love the tag I got from you! Karin @ creativechaos.typepad.com

Beautiful collage!

I haven't really gotten involved in collage or mixed media art yet, but I'm gathering some items for a special project to send to friend.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Oh, and my addiction...that would definitely be fabric (any textile, really)

Hi Michelle, its me Bonnie-we have swapped before (well I am still waiting for your ATC's to arrive) on flickr, you might know me as bonniemommy from flickr. My blog is at:

I am addicted to: chocolate, Desperate Housewives, making ATC's, art journalling, digital scrapbooking, writing, coffee, hugs, roses, reading and my computer, and swaps!!
Love your art, your work and blog and I hope we can do a real swap in future! Would be super! Love your collage-so stunning.

We are two peas in a pod I swear!
I have been really enjoying swaps also. It so fun to meet clever and sweet people and get goodies!!! I think I am participating in 7 swaps right now! And I am also hosting a Cottage garden swap in June. I am totally addicted!
I love your collage, it is sooo sweet! I adore sister-like images it makes me think about my sweet little girls! I always wanted a
sister and all I got was a baby brother! Phooey! He He!

You do the most lovely collages. Little gals in Edwardian dresses... it's just too cute.

One of my addictions is definitely old postcards with images much like you collage with. Scan them and there's just no end to the possibilities for crafting. Keep up the beautiful work.
