Greetings friends! I hope that you are enjoying and making the most out of this fun, festive, and frantic time of year. I am packing up the car today, in preparation for my 6 hour trek up north tomorrow. Not looking forward to the drive, but looking forward to the time with friends and family.
The eye-catching collage that you see here was created by my artist pal Kari McDonald. She has challenged herself to make a collage a day for a year. I'm humbled that Kari took her inspiration for this this piece from my own work! I love the little pops of yellow amongst the neutral palette and her crazy good paper cutting. Look at those chair legs and back. Some mighty fine exacto work! Did you notice the text in the bottom right corner? She uses lots of vintage ephemera like this in her work. Sometime in 2012, Kari will be exhibiting her 365 collages all together. I can't wait to see this momentous show!
"Jen's Coffee Window" and Kari's other collages can be seen on her blog and flickr page. She also sells her fun repurposed vintage button jewelry and accessories at The Paper Button and her handmade etchings, lithographs and screen prints at The Paper Button Press on Etsy. Please patronize my talented friend!
Don't forget to enter my giveaway over on the Mrs. Monologues blog! Last day to enter is Tuesday, December 20th.
Ta-Ta and Happy Holidays!
