Last Call!

Well, I'm about to sell out of my first two print editions!
There's only a few left of each of these . . .

Hope (only 2 left as of 7/11/2010)

copyright by Marsha Jorgensen 4/9/09 All rights reserved. You may not copy or download or use any piece of this artwork.
This is a 5 x 7 collage using a face,legs, and some letters from an image sharing group on flickr, wings from jackandcatcurio, hair, body and dress from magazine pictures. All pieces were printed, carefully trimmed, hand-colored and pieced together on a background of scrap papers and handmade hearts.

My muses are finding their way back to me. I've managed to get a couple of pieces done but I am slower than a snail on a sloth. Truly starting to get caught up and am so glad! I've even started visiting blogs and flickrs but just a few at a time so I can savor everyone's best and latest!

Little Wild Thing

copyright by Marsha Jorgensen 7/3/2010. All rights reserved.
A little 5 x 7 hand cut collage using images from Crowabout Studio B: A Bit of Vintage, Funky People Parts, Funky Doll Parts, Wild Things & Papers, Funky Birds and Borders,and the bird is from Holliewood Studios: Spring Faeries,and the floor is from Tumble Fish Studio: Funky Scraps. All at DeviantScrap.com.
These pieces were reprinted, hand cut, edged in ink, some tinted by hand with ink and pastel and attached to a background that was also slightly altered with ink.

I Can Can Can

Copyright 7/5/2010. All rights reserved.
This is a small 5 x 7 hand cut collage. All 25 pieces were reprinted, cut with scissors, tinted by hand, and glued.
Image credits: background, can dress, iron balls, and 14 sign from Clementine Design's Tommy Town kit. Wings and frame from Holliewood Studio's Stark kit, rays from Sunburst Paper Pack and fish and wand from her Dollies kit. Face from Crowabout StudioB's Funky Doll Parts and legs are from her Funky People Parts kit. Crown and sign from Tumble Fish Studio packs. All available at DeviantScrap.com

I had troubles with this one. I had forgotten to make this piece slightly smaller than 5 x 7 to fit the opening in a standard mat. It was too big for the mat and got cut off. So, I had to alter it again after I thought I was finished so it could work a bit better in a larger 8 x 10 mat. I just added an old photo frame, cut out the middle, inked it, and place the previously finished collage inside. So, it floats on the white background which I've never done before but I like it. This is one of my current favorite pieces.

When it's there, it's there, and when it's not, it's not.

Heyyy Marsha!
So nice to hear from you!
I'm glad you're "back."
Thank you for your kind words about my aunt Ethel. I have been to 3 funerals since November. Yes, I think we are becoming the "old folks"
On a happier note!!....
Wedding dress shopping is quite an adventure! And the bridesmaids dresses they chose are cute.. they're actually going to be Aqua... not purple pink and orange lol.. they were just trying those on for "sizing" lol.. Even I don't think I could deal with such a "burst of color" coming down the Isle!
I love your new pieces and your new cool website. Oh! it's purdy! Your Muse is back from vacation I take it!
So nice!
Don't know If I could handle an Earth quake! We get quite a few here in the northeast Ohio area, believe it or not. We just had one about 3 weeks ago.(epicenter was actually in Canada) Yes, they're small (thank God) But still kinda odd for this area. I've only actually "felt" one, about 20 years ago... it was such a strange sensation!
Ok.. I'm up way to late and babbling!
Have a great weekend!

Lynda said...

Very nice! I love all of those pieces :) I am also slow as a snail on the art front lately.

just Patty Anne said...

I am RUSHING TO ETSY to get hold of your goodies!

just Patty Anne said...

I am self proclaimed "the crock pot of scrappers". Sometimes slow simmering makes for the most savory! And don't you love seredipitous mistakes - like finding out you like the white space around a collage?

On the up note - I was fast enough to make it to your store and get the last and the last and the last and the other last...! Woo Hoo Me! Boo Hoo everyone else who missed out!
She's mine, Mine, ALL MINE!!!!!

Dori Patrick said...

Darn! I think I missed the goodies! Will you be doing any more of the top two prints? Too cute! Love what you are working on lately! Great job!

barbara@sparrowavenue said...

Well, I've only just discovered you today over at Flickr. Have to tell you: your work is so HAPPY.

Dropped by for my weekly dose of Marsha inspiration and got a large one!!! You are doing so many new and wonderful prints ~ I am so delighted and can see that my studio wall will fill up with even more of your fabulous prints!
Many Muse Blessings!!!
