Reworked a couple of these mini collages for the 3rd Annual Post Card Exhibit [fundraiser] @ SPSCC…   Then I thought I should seal them with a matt acrylic varnish and it changed  them a wee bit so I tweaked them a little more.

forgot to photograph them before I put them in the sleeves

3rd Annual Fine Art Post Card Exhibit Theme: It’s the Water Date: January 13 to February 21, 2014

Location: South Puget Sound Community College, The Art Gallery

I also signed up for this celebration – I do have a class scheduled for that day but I think I can get a friend to “table” sit for me that Saturday if the class runs. Maybe I need to clone myself!  I’m looking forward to making new pieces for this celebration.
