Cafe Press shop opened with new collages

mandolin collage Well I finally opened a shop at Cafe Press. I haven't figured out how to best categorize or sell my items on there, but it's an easy enough setup. I have a few of my collages on there now, available for purchase as framed tiles, tile boxes, cards, and other items, including this new one of my mandolin girl. I was thinking of doing a series of music collages -- inspired by the wonderful job my 2 kids are doing in their music lessons!

1942 Beach Trip Collage

This collage was inspired by a photo of my dad who was just a baby when this photo was taken. I painted an 8x10 canvas with acrylic paint, then scanned it in and added the other elements in Photoshop.

Christmas Collage - Christmas Past

This is another digital collage. While I do like it, I would like to re-create this as a mixed media collage. Tomorrow the acrylics come out!

Timmy in the boat collage

This is Timmy mixed in with some Rockport and New York photos I took. Guess I'm getting some of my Christmas presents done on time...I'll frame this one for a gift.

To Be -- a digital collage

This one's been kicking around the studio for a while without a proper background. It's my first attempt at using a nude photo. At first the kids kept saying, "Mom's got a naked picture." I kept telling them it was art. Then I overheard them telling someone else it was art. So then, it must be art!

Cutie Pie

I just had to do this one of my niece because she's so cute.

Christmas Collage

More collages coming with faces other than Aunt Mal's. However I really liked the way this one came out. I think I feel a series coming on! And, it was fun looking for old Christmas ephemera at the flea market!

The Gals Collage

Something to go with the Hat Girl Collage. I love the photo of the girls. It's my grandmother in the middle, somewhere around 1920ish.

Hat Girl Collage 1

So I guess the thing now is that I'm into faces. The face is of my Great Aunt Mal. It's a pigmented transfer collage -- 10" x 12" onto watercolor paper.
