the realization--a mixed media collage

Do you ever find a collage photo that just makes you laugh?  So it is with little Mary Ann, or so I've named her . . .
That's gold embossing around the edges of Mary Ann's "photo."

And of course this vintage little lady needs a bit of vintage lace and trim on this 6x6 mixed media collage.
You can see a bit of the pocket here, an Altered Pages image printed on vellum depicting an historic, if inaccurate, view of the universe.

Can you see the lace pull on the edge of the tag peeping out of the top of the pocket?

Both collage and tag were made from the same piece of mixed media collaged background.

"Mary Ann was stunned by the realization that the universe did NOT revolve around her."

I hope you enjoyed this piece from the past, created quite a few years ago for Altered Pages.  

Did you know that Altered Pages doesn't just have collage images you can print, but also collage backgrounds?  PLUS color specific collage pages?  PLUS printable random ephemera, like vintage envelopes, postcards, etc.?  Seriously, anything you need in the image department, you can find it--just take a browse through THESE.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
