This week's collages

This past week I tasked myself with making both a boyish collage and a girlish collage. The black and white picture of this boy and his dog printed out very detailed and fine. I went with Americana colors on it and it is called "Patches of Yesterday".

The girlie one I used soft pictures of a cat and a dog and called it "Sweet Companions". For the pink flowers I sketched them on paper, scanned, printed on fabric and colored in with colored pencils and added beads in the centers.

These are a bit different than my normal crazy quilt collages.

I'll put both on ebay along with the fabric book this weekend.

Cat these are great.

yes , they are different from your usual quilts.

I like to see you and your new ideas coming fast and furious !!!

Love the button thing -as you know- on the Patches of Yesterday (and what a cute photo- it is perfect. Love the colors too.

The Sweet Companions is just adorable and I love that you sketched, printed and sewed on top of that...

You are a very Creative Artist and I love to see what comes next.
