Why I need a maid--

I am such a housework slug. I do nothing on a regular basis with the exception of laundry and dishes/kitchen. If my family weren't so wonderful about pitching in I shudder to think what our home would look like. Seriously, I hate cleaning, and do it like running into a burning house. I hold my breath and do it as quick as possible-delegating when ever possible!!! WHY--you know why-

ART-OF COURSE -----I work full time and all I think about is getting home to check my email and put down on paper my ideas. Every magazine I look at I want to rip out pages to use in an ATC/collage. I make mental notes about color combos. I obsess on buying collage sheets and glue, paint and ink. My name is Lynne, and I am an ART junkie. Is that bad?

Here is what I have been working on for the past few weeks- Some ATC's and some larger pieces. I hope you like them, I had a WONDERFUL time making them. That is the High I get from my ART.--"It's a good thing" Martha Stewart

The next images are of the bigger pieces I have been working on--

This shadowbox piece is 9"x7' /inside is 7"x5"

Below is a series of the same vintage image in different sizes-I hand painted/altered the image

#1-Image size is 4"x5' without frame #2-Image size is 6"x6" without frame

#3-Image is 6.5"X6.5" unframed
This image has the most altering, as you can see-

MOO to you

Moo's are a tiny version of the ATC--My definition. I have been seeing them mentioned on blogs and in different groups and there is even a great place in England that you can order gorgeous printed ones-either your own art (uploaded to their site) or use their art gallery. Moo's are used as calling cards or alternative to the standard business card. Moo size is 28mm X 70mm.
My First Moo attempt--

My first page of my new blog. I have been blogging on Wordpress for a little over 2 years, but so many of the Artist that I admire are on Blogger, that I decided to start an ART blog over here. I will be posting my ATC's, Collages, and Photography here. I hope you like it, and please let me know if you do. I love to hear from readers who visit. I promise to respond. Well I think I will start off with my most recent pieces-
This first one is a 5"X5" piece that I love-
Next are two of several ATC's I just completed--
