big round pumpkins (and an eggplant) sprouting in paris

I swear I didn't plan this. I found myself with a collage I'd just made, and lookee here... lots of HATS! I hope y'all don't mind if I drop in from time to time when what I just happen to be making goes with the current theme... =smile=

après le déluge, ceci

Hi there, Kollage Kitters! I was gone, but now I'm back. Just temporarily, though... Since you guys gave me the idea of making a collage from scraps, I couldn't resist sharing this one with you. The only way I can justify its having something to do with hats is that in the lower righthand corner, on the horse's neck, there's a Rasputin-looking fellow in a large hat. =shrug=

So... what you see are almost the entire contents of the box of scraps that has been filling up on my work table for a while now.

As for the title, I'm not going to explain it. Either you get the joke, or you don't. If you don't get the joke, don't feel bad, because it's really not that funny anyway.

THEME - Hats

A popular theme to end my month of theme picking. Who wants to pick themes for May ?

Unfinished Dream

I didn't have time to finish this collage of a dream I had the other night . Seemed to be about pushing sculptures or half naked people down a steep hill on sledges or barrows? Very odd it was. I'll finish at some point and put it on my Laughing Shed blog so you can see how it turned out.

Seaside Dreams

Altered cabinet card photograph.

Dream No. 12786. Where Are The Keys?

I think this must be quite a popular dream - looking for things lost or finding things that were lost. In this case some tin clockwork toys including a brightly coloured frog on a market stall.

Dream No. 13897 Burying Food In The House

This is a dream i had a couple of nights ago probably after too many strong cheeses!

THEME - Dreams and Nightmares

This week's theme is all about what happens in your brain when you go to sleep - the mysterious world of dreams. I have been trying to make collages for a while now inspired by dreams I have had. Most are half remembered so I have to make the other half up! Have fun!

Farewell for Now

I've really enjoyed the weekly rhythm of collaborating with such wonderful collage artists on creating this blog, but now it's time for me to take a break. I hope I will be able to come back later on, or when the theme goes with my current project...

--thanks so much, y'all!

Sorry for delay. This weeks theme is all about animals, especially those cute and cuddly ones that children love. So pets and domestic animals can feature in this or go wild and crazy with animals you have made up! It's up to you! Have fun!
