Altered CD

This is the CD I altered for Chriss's challenge on http://thepapergirls.blogspot.com/
I was influenced a little by the style of Anahata Katkin....I just love her collages!
I have become quite addicted to chopping up magazines in recent weeks; I find it quite therapeutic.......

I've had two exciting parcels from Australia this week. I am so grateful to Jacky, who sent me a gorgeous selection of paper napkins to use in my collage work and journaling (much nicer than the ones you can find over here ...as she'll discover when she receives some from me in return!)

And my very good friend Dot sent me some of her fabulous artwork (and lots of extras including a pile of delicious fabric pieces!)

Dot makes lots of these flying birdies in different colour combinations (as you'll see on her blog) - I especially like the Christmassy colours on mine!
And this is the fabric arch she made for our challenge on http://bigartadventure.blogspot.com/
Thank you for giving it to me Dot....its even more lovely in real life (and I just love the bird's legs!)

This is beautiful and a much nicer way to recycle old magazines.

The altered CD is gorgeous, Linda! I love Anahata's style too - I was so fortunate to get to take a 2-day class from her last summer. YAY! And present from Dotee is always a joy!

Hope you're well.

All my best,
Holly
