I just love Traci Bautista's new book Collage Unleashed. I bought it a few weeks ago and have been pouring over page after colorful page each day, trying to decide which technique to do first. I did a little doodling, dry brushing, stamping in my journal today playing with colors.

Delving into some unfamiliar territory with this mixed media piece. Water colors, charcoal, and LuminArte' on foam core. I was inspired by http://www.rachelkoepke.com/index.html recent project on HGTV That's Clever. A link to the directions and materials here: http://http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/cr_painting/article/0,1789,HGTV_3282_4487989,00.html

Playing around with altering photos. Using sandpaper block, Lyra watercolor crayons, colored pencils and walnut ink. The image is from http://melanisage.com

Art Squared Skeletons, for a swap at Embellished Circus yahoo group. I altered a photo I took last summer and layered with a stamp image from http://melaniesage.com then mounted it on hand painted collage paper and chip board.
