Carmen Collage



Collage art book pages in progress for my sister. I used techniques from Traci Bautista's Retro-rags class from Art and Soul http://www.treicdesigns.com/ I used stamped and painted paper towels, papers and cloth with childhood photo transfers.

Rauschenburg, that's the name of the artist. Staying among bits of assembledge in your "sewing room" sent me dreaming. In my dream your sewing room was called "pre-inflorescence" What a colorful, organic place your sewing room. In my dream it is the center of a bromiliad. The plant, after uncurling its final leaf, gathers the pieces of itself in preparation to flower. You could sale tickets
~FOR SALE tickets to Preinflorescence,workshops in assembledge and organic creations~

Oh Carmen what a beautiful vision of my humble sewing room sanctuary! You are a poet my sister. Rauschenburg was darned famous!! I thought Mary Carr and Janis Joplin were it from Port Arthur.

Wow this is a soulful quilt from a soulful quilter and arty dude like myself. I just love this... the colours sing like melodies rocking round to the middle square, from night and day this quilt gives love when sad and you pray, when happy in sun-rays this quilt will make your day.
