It's Raining. It's Pouring.

My latest batch of newly "ripped out of magazines" pages. I now have a large container of these selected items and really need to actually find a use for them. I am interested in collage. I recently purchased a journal with a wire spine --so the added bulk of the collages doesn't splay the book out. I have paste in a jar specifically for collage. Sounds like I'm ready. Today being a horrid, rainy, windy, freezing cold day--I don't think we'll be leaving the house.

My "portrait" out of the wastebasket. If you click to enlarge, the fabric in the eyes was so perfect. Gives the face some life. And I adore the way the cheekbones came out. And the hair. I am just so sorry I read the instructions "incorrectly" and missed the mail in date for the QA magazine contest. Oh, well. It's not the first time I've missed a deadline.

I must have taken six shots of this trying to get the flash off the surface. I found this somewhere and it had two "Objects of My Desire" on it---Dr. House and Mao. I found some silky, floral chiffon at 70% off at Joann's on Wednesday for my Mao quilt. Also a library patron gave me Chinese money with Mao's picture on it. Don't ask why. I have no idea why I am fascinated by Mao--especially the Warhol Mao. It just happened. Johnny Depp and Beckham the soccer star in England are also Objects. As is a 1950's pick up truck, a vintage Airstream camper and a Viking range. This is my life, and welcome to it.

I'm sending the Hub out for homemade pizza fixin's. Pepperoni, cheese, mushrooms and onion, maybe some pineapple. And some beer. See you all later.
