Collage Montage

Finishing up several projects.  Getting ready for the Vintage Bazaar and I am happy and relieved to say that I have 49 pieces ready to go and some furniture upcycling in the works that the Superhero and I are doing together.  I will share them all soon.  Here is a small series of 4×4 collages on deep cradled panels using some of my collection of cancelled stamps.  These are simple but sweet and the stamps are what really shine here.

  1. Loving the backgrounds of blues and greens, and the geometry of your stamps, circles, and dashes. You are going to rock that bazaar! xo

  2. Ooooooh, can you tell that these reeeeeally pull at my heartstrings!! Just adore those stamps and how you have accented them with your wonderful textues and marks! Fantastic work Corrine!

  3. Although I no longer have my collection, I was a stamp collector as a child. Stamps still have a fascination for me, so this “quad” is something I really love. You have created a busy and very interesting background, but the focus remains on the stamps–not an easy thing to accomplish, but you have done it with aplomb!

  4. Loving the blues and green Corrine! Makes me feel cool on a hot day!
    Hugs! deb

  20. While the stamps are fun, it’t the background that make the shine. Love the greens with all the texture!
    So you’re going to sell your pieces at a bazaar or didI get that wrong? Sounds both a bit scary and lots of fun.

  21. These are really pretty. I love green right now, and I love the texture!

    I’m too afraid to use my stamps. They are so cool, aren’t they? Okay, I’ll use them.

    (I’m going to make copies first)
