Collage Circle Exchange – February Collages

I LOVE creating collages! It’s wonderful to take pieces and parts of papers, tapes, trinkets and things and piece them together in a harmonious way to create a world of beauty. And there’s just something magical about scissors cutting paper and the smell of glue and the feeling of it all that sends me to happy places : ) You know, you know what I mean… and if the “grown up” you doesn’t… the “little kid” you does!!!

Here are the two collages I sent out in February… First one to Germany and second one to Canada!!!

I received this collage from Eleni Rivers. I wish you could feel this one… I don’t know how Eleni created this but the surface is so smooth and leather-like. It has a wonderful old feeling yet it’s so alive and colorful!
