I'm not doing what I should be doing . . .

. . . again. What else is new? But I did get a couple of pieces done over the last few days.

I watermarked this first one so you can click on it and see it a bit larger. I usually link pictures so lurkers can't click and download a nice big copy.

The Lesson Remembered


copyright by Marsha Jorgensen 3/15/10. All rights reserved. You may not copy, download, print, or use this image in any way without my permission.

This is a large 8 x 10 collage that is not digital but but includes 23 hand cut pieces and the characters were hand colored from grayscale images. This piece uses a woman's face from DigitalCollageSheets.etsy.com and used with a commercial license. The man's face came from flickr's catnipstudio. The main bodies come from flickr's takeabreak and the shoes were scanned and altered from magazine and catalog pictures. The blue background is made of two textures from flickr's JoesSistah and used with commercial fees. The grass is from Holliewood Studios at Oscraps.com and used with a commercial license. The wings and most other elements are from Christina at ChristinaReneeDesigns.com and used with a commercial license.


This one is kinda simple. I had saved pieces to participate in Art Creations Friday and left them undone so I combined them to use them up and finish a little ditty here.

I Heart Fish

This is a small 5 x 7 collage using a face and upper body from the gals at Art Creations Friday blog. The fish is from DigitalCollageSheets.etsy.com and used with a commercial license as was the grass from Holliewood Studios at Oscraps.com. The water and upper background are from flickr's rubyblossom and the boat is from siefert2.etsy.com. The wings are from AsunderEphemera.etsy.com and the hat is made from a 100 year old dictionary. The pants are from my own vintage picture and the shoes were scanned and altered from a catalog. The striped border is from Crowabout.etsy.com.


Mailing stuff tomorrow. I had a big Etsy week last week (28 pieces - I think - sold! woohoo!) and still have a few things left to mail. Then chore stuff to do. Hope to do lots of blog and flickr visiting this week as I got almost all caught up last week and don't want to get behind again.

These are just beautiful Marsha, but I thought the watermark was part of the picture, lol! Congrats on the sales.

Marsha, I forgot to ask you how you 'link' your pictures? Cyber theft can be a problem for me too unfortunately.

Fantastical! Love your unique style, strong colors, humor, and cleverness. The "flight instructor" is brilliant! You are truly gifted, and good-on-you for protecting your "babies" - your creations! It's sad that it has to be done. Now, off to visit your Etsy store....
