Painted paper backgrounds

I did the painted tissue paper/paper towel backgrounds. I also added in some coffee stained coffee filters and some old french text. I cut hearts out of some of them to make the valentine's cards - I also painted other papers and cut hearts out of them, as well.

ATC's for informal swap

these are my ATC's for the swap posted on the CollageCats yahoo group. Hosted by Joyce
I was experimenting with having a heavily layered background. I really like how these turned out. The pictures don't show it the greatest. Lots of various tissue paper and different paint layers and packing tape transfers. The backs are done as well!!

Dark and Dangerous Zine

Here are a few photos of the latest zine I've done for a swap. The theme of this swap was Dark and Dangerous, so I did mine about the organization International Justice Mission. They go into the literal dark and dangerous places in the world, working to free victims of slavery, oppression and injustice, and bring justice to the perpetrators. Just an amazing organization. The president and founder of IJM, Gary Haugen, says 'I no longer ask where is God in places like this, I ask, where are God's people?'

This zine is very interactive. Probably too much. There are 5 ATC's, a foldout book, a fold out envelope with text on it, and goodies inside, lots of yarn and other goodies paperclipped and tied to it......a lot of fun to look at and take apart. This one is my favorite zine, even more so than the Meaning Affirmed I just finished. Probably because of the subject of this one.

Meaning Affirmed

I just finished making my 3rd zine, and I am very pleased with how it turned out. The only part of it I'm not sure about is that it ended up being slightly more of an art zine, than a written one. Too late now I guess :)

Here are a few peeks at it:
