Eye Candy

If you are interested in historical and symbolic art, you may enjoy looking at pieces by Theresa Martin.

Some collage has a way of seeming repetitive. You see a lot of imagery used until it becomes common.

But there's something different about her images that looks fantastical and yet historical. She makes reliquaries, shrine-like and resembling altars.

Do you enjoy looking at other artists' work - do you find it inspirational?

I've been thinking about ATC cards. I want to make some collages and create some Artists' Trading Cards.

I've found a new tool, they were inexpensive at the craft store, called Brush Markers. I want to combine with tea-stained papers, black and white images and text. Sounds like fun!

Here are some sites to check out if you are interested in Artist Trading Cards, to tickle your fancy and get your creative ideas flowing.
Art e-Zine site - lots of good links to various artists here.
Want to see some really cool stenciled collage art check out this site, and there's a tutorial here on making stencils to use in ATC and collage work.

If I come up with any interesting collages or Trading Cards, I'll post them.

Oh, Artist's Trading Cards are so cool! The last set I saw pictures of were some of Andrew Thornton's, and those were neat... I can't wait to see what you come up with! (:
