Pretty in Dots!

What's new?? So, my friend Teresa from CedarJunction emailed me today and gave me the "hint" that I could add a background to my blog easily with HotbliggetyBLOG---yes Teresa, I HAD noticed that I was the last blogger on the planet who still had a boring white background on my blog!! LOL If I had known how easy it was going to be to install, I would have done it a long time agon. Thanks for the kick in the pants, I am now sporting some pretty new polka dots---what do you all think?

I've been happy to get back to the studio and finished up some collages that have been in the works for a while now....of course they have BIRDS in them (are you shocked?) *wink* I tried a new thing on these three by using different paper for the matting, I think it really adds a nice punch of color and a nice dimension to the collages!


BlueJay and Butterfly



Pretty Robin Redbreast


Robin in the Garden

The beautiful bird images I used in these collages were purchased from Scraps of Time -- stop by and check out her shop, great stuff!!!

The background is definitely you! So pretty. I really love your new collages. I'm sure I'll recover from the shock of you using birds. :)

Your blog looks great - especially with your beautiful collages. The polka dots was a great choice.

Great big smiles,
Teresa

Karen, your blog looks beautiful in polka dots. I had to laugh, because our blog is just plain pink background, we haven't fancied ours up. Your collages are beautiful! Twyla
