Here's another set of round collages I made during our "Snowpocalypse." The longer I was snow-bound, the stranger my collages became...

We've been snowed in for almost a week. It's given me lots of time to make more collage coins. I'll be fine as long as I don't run out of matte medium!!

More collage "coins." (See the first set here.) I'm especially fond of the dolls on the coins at the end.

I've discovered a new format for collage -- "coins." These cardboard discs are 2 1/2" in diameter with collages on both sides. I made them for a swap, but I'm not sure I can part with them...

Below are the fronts and backs of the first 4 sets of coins I made, each with an assigned theme. 

Theme: Postage stamps
 Theme: Quotes

 Theme: Magazines

Theme: Zetti

If you're in Seattle in the next few months, check out the Northwest Collage Society Winter show at the Washington State Convention Center (runs through March 31, 2019).

All the collages are large (18" x 24"), which makes works like mine even more arresting.  
"Power"

"Look"

"LIFE"

I made another set of collage bookmarks to send to customers who purchase something from my Etsy shop. It's a good way to use up the many scraps of paper I generate; I'm hoping the recipients enjoy them as well.

Click here to see the first set of bookmarks, here to see the second, and here to see the third. To get your own original bookmark, just order something from my Etsy shop!

The best thing about a swap is that, sometimes, you get back more than you put in! That's the case with this fall's iHanna DIY postcard swap. I made 10 cards (see them here) and sent them around the world. The 10 cards I got back were all kinds of wonderful. 

Here's what I found in my mailbox, from artists around the world:

This one, from Toni, includes ephemera that I like to use in MY collages -- a woman from a vintage ad, sewing pattern tissue, and text from a book.
Kathy from South Carolina sent me this cool Hand of Fatima card:
This Asian-inspired landscape comes from Leah in Texas:
Heidi in nearby Port Townsend WA sent this delicate reminder of fall "flowers":
Shawna from Spokane sent me this mesmerizing card, so elegant and incandescent:
Lynn sent me just what I needed from Allentown, PA -- a reminder that I'll see the sun again, someday!
The only clue I have to the creator of this enigmatic card is "Emerald Paper Company." I wonder if the artist is the girl in the center photo?

Penelope from nearby Longview WA monoprinted this eye-popping abstract piece. How did she guess purple is my favorite color?
Bears, bears everywhere! And flowers, too! This fun card full of Washi tape, made by Jacqueline, came all the way from Taiwan.
Susan sent this sparkly holiday greeting from San Anselmo CA:
Thanks to all the artists who sent me their wonderful work!
