Itty Bitty Collage swap: Vickie Jones ~ South Dakota

Vickie Jones is a fairly new participant here at creative swaps, but she is creating wonderful things! Vickie wrote me an email describing her process for the Itty Bitty collage swap and I am going to quote her . . .

"I chose to do something a little different than the others...I took a recent photograph of Mt Rushmore and printed photos on vellum and other glossy print media. My embellishments were yarn, paper clay accented with metallic rub-on media, sticks and "grasses/weeds" plus some chalking to give a little more color or highlights to the pics. Some turned out neater looking than others. I enclosed an extra one for your collection. I chose this theme because our family has a "cabin in the Hills" so we spend as much of our summertime as we can in the Black Hills. Mount Rushmore is always on our agenda even if it is just a "drive-by look"...it is an amazing monument to our fore fathers, their creativity, beliefs and dreams! Thank you for hosting this swap...I look forward to being in others...I think I even have more "artsy people" from our area watching your site! It has been fun!"

It is my pleasure, Vickie, thank you!

I love Vickie's grasses, pine cones & alphabet beads! Did you print some of the images on fabric, Vickie? It feels like it! You can post your answer as a comment, if you wish. (Make sure to sign in when commenting, if you are new to this!)

I actually used fabric for the background and "glued" the vellum or print media to the fabric...in a couple of them I may have sewn in the sides when I finished the edges...it was a learning process as to which worked and looked the best.

Vickie, I love your itty bittie, they make me homesick! I grew up in western South Dakota and most of my family is still there...around Kadoka to the Hills. Now I am just over in Wyoming. It is a small world.

Sorry that I made you homesick...hopefully you are able to visit often! I could not pass up the opportunity to "plug" SD with this great monument here. I feel everyone needs to visit it at least once in their lifetime!
