Do you really think I've just been

lazing about, taking a swim, and mixing drinks for all my too-cool-for-skool blogging buddies?

Not even close! I've been deep in the art mines, trying to dig some gold out of them thar hills! I finished up this collage today. I've titled it "They All Had Theda Bara Eyes." It's a collage on canvas and is 14"x18". There are lots of vintage images, beads, stamping, transparencies, beaded fringe, vintage repurposed jewelry, and Dresden scrap and glitter.

I love this rusty oval-shaped piece of something-or-other. I'm pretty sure it's tin - what it was meant to be used for, I have no idea - perhaps the hardware for a drawer pull?
I also like the way all the bugle beads radiate from the figures, giving a ribbon-like swirl throughout parts of the collage.
And this is the center focus piece - transparencies, vintage book text and images, handmade art paper, faery string, bugle beads and jet beaded fringe
Well, that's it for the day. No energy left to attempt being clever or witty - or even coherent. I have to go list this on Etsy before I crash in front of the tube to watch CS:NY which I taped last night. Speaking of last night: you go, Adam! (If that means nothing to you, forget about it.)

Have a lovely evening ... I'll be back tomorrow morning for Flea Market Friday...though I have no clue what I'm setting in my booth!
