Still working with the Small Worlds theme. This one is a bit larger at 8" x 10" and is my first use of independent layering elements. Can you tell I am having a really good time with this?

Two more additions to my growing collection of collage worlds. Half the fun is finding a starting point and watching the scenery build from there. Usually there is one area of a paper that suggests something - a moon, horizon, neat sky features, landscape, seascape - and that is my starting point. Both of these were pretty much complete as a whole and didn't really need much to complete the scene.

This is another one of my small world creations. After I assembled the pieces and took the first photo it was just a bit bland - lots of color and pattern but no real focus. I added a much larger moon and decided to go with the tree theme since I had used the trees stamp and add just one large tree top to bottom, front and center. It is almost as if you are approaching this large tree and looking out onto the landscape - at least that is what I hope is happening!

Meet Calliope

This is another Storyteller and her name is Calliope. She reminds me of the circus - colorful, happy and busy! She is my first glass creation that combines mixed media elements - silk, fibers, wire & bead. Surely you can here the circus music playing and the promise of wonderful surprises that await!
