Travel Journal Collage

The challenge at Collage Obsession is to create a 'travel journal page'.  Over Memorial Day weekend I "kidnapped" my husband and we went on a trip of Kentucky Americana. 
This shows just a few of the places we visited over that weekend.

Pin It And Spin It

I was inspired by a quote I found on Pinterest and a painting technique of masking over an old painting. 

I grabbed a painting I didn’t like for the makeover.  (Those are some sad looking poppies!)  I used a stencil to trace my letters onto contact paper.  My original plan was to spray over the entire painting then pull off the letters so the colors of the painting came thru.  But as I looked at it, I decided I like the letters on top of the painting.

So I traced around the letters and painted each one in... to make my spin on the pin!

And Now a Multi-Talented Fish!

I really enjoy the challenge of combing prompts from the various creative blogs I follow.  This week there was "fish" from "Take A Word" and "Words" from Inspiration Avenue and the color prompt of "Candy Apple Red and Yellow" at Summer of Colors.

Madame Butterfly

The challenge at "Take A Word" is butterfly.  I made this collage after a trip with my Mom and niece to the Butterfly House in St. Louis.  For this I used the brochure for the 'title', the shop's bag for the body (it had the print already on it), and I cut up a post card of a butterfly to make wings for "Madam Butterfly".
