Magazine Collage Art

So my resolution to blog more isn't going phenomenally... along with a couple others... but one resolution was to get back into art again & I am all over that. I have been wanting to collage an image out of magazine clippings for awhile. I was first inspired by my college best Emma's collages. She makes hers out of her old surf magazines and they are amazing. I still have yet to see any others quite like hers:

this one is in my fav "niece" Ella's nursery - love. love. love.

Since I have more architectural/interior design magazines than I have room for in my southie shack I am totally copying & making one of my own. I started looking up other artists and was blown away. Click on the links underneath to check out more.

I have gotten way ahead of my self and already have a list of pieces I want to make. I need to simmer down & see how this one goes first. Although there's no way I can possibly live up to the artists I just posted I'll show you my first attempt when I'm done.


C. Wonder

Happy 2012!! One of my many New Year resolutions is to try to blog more, so let's see how this goes...

I stumbled upon C. Wonder & had to share. Tory Burch ex- J. Christopher Burch just opened a flagship store in SoHo & I'm obsessed. I'll be needing the following (please):

Green Elephant Plate
chartreuse and elephants in one? yes.

Ikat Pattern Notebook, Small
to write all my big plans for 2012 in...
White Wine Stem
to drink pinot out of if said plans go awry
Diamond Pillow
for my new crush on orange
Elephant Ceramic Box, Square
I need another box/elephant accessory like a hole in the head.. but I think I actually need this..

That will be all.
