Life is a collage...

Welcome to my world of unique journals, Fairy Art and wedding paper whimsies! Discovering how to make a digital collage was a eureka moment for me. I had been dabbling in paper collage, but found I was loath to part with any I made due to the precious nature of the components: all the wonderful phrases from old books and bits of old letters, not to mention old photos. I simply could not bring myself to destroy these ephemeral ties to the past. Learning how to collect all these bits and pieces and gather them together in Photoshop felt like a miracle! When I discovered brushes in Photoshop, I thought I would cry.

Right now, I am addicted to the vintage photographs of children mentioned above and love depicting them as fairies "found" and preserved in the "Naturalist's" library. Each fairy comes with their own unique story. I am also currently creating many one of a kind items in mixed media using paper, thread, metal bits, charms and rhinestones. These items are all one of a kind and will come and go, so please visit often if you are interested.

    My first love was ... pink. I branched out to pale green, ecru and french blue. My second love was books. My third love was crinolines. Unfortunately, I was born in the wrong century. So, I have combined my love of all three here in my shop.

I will gift wrap for free when requested. This means I will wrap the item in question in tissue paper (no box) and tie with either a ribbon or string depending on the style. I can also include a gift enclosure with message if one is requested.
