Where's Your Christmas Card?

Merry Christmas to you! Thanks for visiting my blog! I'm so happy to have you here and share with you some of the things I've been working on over the last few months. This blog is about my commitment to creating art and to myself as an artist, for better or for worse. With it, I have simply vowed to make more art, and share it. My goal is to post at least every two weeks, so please come back as often as you'd like. Feel free to look at some of the other postings, and comment anytime. I really value feedback!

To find your piece of the Christmas collage, click on one of the two images below for a bigger view. (The two originally started as one big piece, but it was too big to work with so I cut it in half after painting it!) I knew I'd be cutting it up into small pieces, so I purposely made it very busy. It is made up of many things: random Christmas-themed things I've collected over many years, ribbon, fabric, a letter torn into pieces, stickers, netting, decorative papers, tissue paper, buttons, stitches by the sewing machine, a bottle label, and acrylic paint, all on a huge piece of construction paper. I cut it up into more than 50 pieces and sewed individual pieces to the black card stock. If you'd like to see most of the 50 pieces, scroll down to the bottom of my blog. Can you find yours there too?

Paul and I hope you have a lovely Christmas. Be well and have a splendid 2009!

Edited to add photo of final cards:

I love it! Greg had a great idea. Do this for a family reunion so that when everyone comes with their piece, a complete picture can be made!

I love to see how much your art has evolved.

I found it! I found our piece! It's SO fun to get a piece of the finished product-thanks for letting me see the work in progress too.
Have a wonderful new year!

I also found our piece. Hope you guys had a lovely Christmas and we also hope you have a wonderful new year!

P.S: Thanks for the card, we have been trying to get in touch but had lost your details - hopefully back on track now!
