Latest Designs & Treasures

Come and see us at the "Antique & Collectable Show" in Victoria, B.C.  June 13th !  Pearkes Arena 10am~4pm.

Well it's been 2 months since our last Blog entry BUT we have been busy "Treasure Hunting" and designing 2 new sets of Art Cards and 35 new Tag pages!!

The first set of Art Cards are now available on our site and the next set of Art Cards and Tags will be available early June.  They will be off to the printers next week!   So please check back.  Wholesale card inquiries are welcome as well.

We will be offering our Collage Sheets as pdf' down loadable files in June.

"Latest Treasures" include modified smaller Letterpress Trays for mixed media collage.  They are available in limited supply.

We found these rusted grates at a local 2nd hand store. (See below)  Lots of ideas for these beautiful caste iron sculptures....  We will photograph each step in the process of transforming them into Unique Altered Art.  We will feature the before and after photos in our Gallery Section.

With each art piece we will try and create a colour combination palette, in the hope that you may also want to use it.  It always takes me ages (sometimes days) to pick out just the right vintage document, photo etc for a new piece, background colours generally are several layers deep to obtain the right hue..... and then changed again.  Each layer has its own story to tell as well.  I have many canvases started but never finished...

From each palette one can create unlimited art pieces, handmade or digital.  The colour formulas are in RGB and listed beside each colour for easy reference.
