Inspired by Laura Lein Svencner – Collage by Carol A. More LOVE Laura’s work. There’s so much color and texture in it. I’ve learned from her how to TRANSFER (shhhh…this is a secret) images, make my own papers and glazing combinations. And I was wondering what I was going to do with that 1960s textured…… Continue reading Catch-up time! Wondering what y’all have been doing, too….
Sweet Buyers – New Bern Artist Studio Tour 2021 Allow me to work backwards, if you please? Where did I go is more like it!

Happy November/almost December everyone! Hope you’re creative brains are overflowing like mine is these days. So many projects, so little time. So….collage….again. Every Fall, the National Collage Society holds a juried show and for the past 4 years, I’ve entered but for some reason, my creative preferences have not been under the ‘collage’ to-do column.…… Continue reading Collage!
Hi all! I love diving into cozier clothes even though I am crazy in love the with weather here. We still continue to go to ‘a’ beach once a week, spending the day doing nothing but breathing in the salty air and collecting shells. Last week, we hitched a ferry ride to Shackleford Banks and…… Continue reading Falling into Fall with More Studio Time!
Hi my friends, hope this August brings you warm, sunny days…with just enough rainy ones to barricade yourself indoors to whip up a creative frenzy.
