Playing with Trisha's Stuff

My friend and fellow Ginger, Trisha, had a brilliant idea for a creative collaboration. She sent out 10 packets of "her stuff" to 10 different artists to see what they would make with it. Such fun!

I decided to make a canvas, which I painted with Lumiere paints. I added a stamped tissue paper overlay...which ever so slightly distorted...bah. Anyway, I centered my piece around this quote - "Here's to good women. May we know them, may we be them , may we raise them!". I centered all my stamped images and collaged images around this theme.

In my "envie" as Trish put it, I got 2 collage images - a girl and a flower, 3 plastic stars, 3 tickets, a text page with french exercises, a bit of shiny paper, a delightful piece of designer paper, a piece of black lace and some bling. I tried to use everything and succeeded except for the bling.

Here's some phrases from the text page, the designer paper, lace, star now covered with the shiny bits and a ticket:

More designer paper, lace, and more phrases from the text page:

Here's the two collage pieces, flower and girl:
