Creative Carmelina
Lovey Guest Curator
When I started my journey down this path of vintage photos and fabrics I was so unpolished. It was new to me. So many people were already making collages. Where would I fit in this crowd of talented artists ...

Lovey
  Laughing with Angels   Lovey

Creative Carmelina:
Carmelina is an extremely talented and gifted artist. Everything she creates comes out so beautifully. I enjoyed reading this post because it showed her process for creating something beautiful in monotone.

 

Laughing With Angels:
June is such an inspiration to me. Her gift of love pours out beautifully in her garden and home. I love her heart and creative eye for decorating. This post is simply a touch of her love in
"beautiful white" and "really pretty."

 

I've enjoyed posting these photos of my Studio Haven because it gave me the opportunity to share a small glance into my heart for art. My love for vintage photos and fabrics blended together in harmony is the driving force for my fabric photo collages.

 

Marie French Marie French Guest Curator
I was first influenced by art at a very early age, as my mother is a very creative person and artist in her own right. We grew up in a very creative household. We moved a lot because my father was in the military, so we were creative in our household with everything from meals to Christmas gifts. I have two brothers and two sisters and we are all creative ...
