A "New" Technique

Back around 1995 or so, when I first began doing collage my Dad got me a video of Gerald Brommer. In it Mr. B talked about, and demonstrated, how to do lovely watercolor and rice paper collages. Believe me, I spent many hours doing just that - it was so much fun, and such a creative experience. The end result would always end up as somewhat a surprise...I actually won my first art prize with one of those collages =)

Anyway, I was playing around in Paint Shop today and came up with these - actually two photos combined, but I altered them before I combined them ... the textured look is almost exactly what I was getting from Gerald Brommer's watercolor/rice paper technique. If you look up close you can really see the details...I love it when I get surprised by the things Paint Shop can do - it definitely lets me know there's always something new to learn.

Hope everyone is well, and is enjoying their last few days of 2006 - I can't wait for 2007! Nothing like a New Year to get ya going'! Enjoy!!! xxxoooxxx

Some Things ...

are definitely worth waiting for ... and I do believe I've been waiting for some "real" snow to play in for a couple of years. Isn't this beyond beautiful? These are from yesterday morning in Huachuca Canyon (in the Huachuca Mountains, of course =) There was a young family up there playing in the snow (you may be able to make out a coat or two if you zoom in to the end of the road) - so cute! The little boy kept pelting his Dad with snowballs (the little guy had a great arm too - definitely a future ball player...) Didn't spot any deer though, but I think they may have been hiding, it being hunting season and all - poor things!

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! When I get more time I'll fill you in on ours - it was sweet and quiet, and I think the overall feeling was one of peace and togetherness. I couldn't ask for anything more =) Blessings and hugs to everybody - xxooxx Peggi

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas =)

I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very merry and safe Christmas! As many of you know, this will be a bittersweet Christmas for my family and me this year, as my Dad passed away last spring after a long and courageous battle with cancer... Of course, waking up every day since then, crawling out of bed, and "putting one foot in front of the other" has not been easy - but at Christmastime celebrating without a special loved one is even more difficult. I am grateful I have so many wonderful memories of my Dad throughout the years I spent as his proud daughter - those are truly the peace I find comfort in. So yes, Virginia, to everything there is a season and we now begin this Christmas season head-on ... may your lives be filled with blessings, love and hope at this time . God bless you all, my wonderful blog friends. Merry Christmas to you and yours =) Peggi

I mean, honestly - what on earth would be a good name for this little collage anyway? lol

Well, things here have been too busy this week ... with Christmas shopping, and decorating, and baking going on I haven't had too much time for making any art.
