Outer Space Collages

Blasting off into 2012! Stars were made with fingerprints...planets were made with crayon watercolor resist with texture rubbing plates. The kids, of course, are fans of anything with their photo!


  1. These are so much fun! I really like the colors and textures on the planets.

  2. What fun!

    I like the new look to your blog - very cheerful and energetic!

  3. Great!! I like the kids pictures in the astronauts!

  4. I like the background & title area of your did you do that??? e-me and let me know...PLEASE! :)

  5. @mary: thanks so much. my art room in cambodia had a few texture rubbing plates and now i have a massive collection of them. kids think they're magic, wax resist never seems to get old.

    @phyl: thanks-- it was the Staycation that made me change it! I was so sick of looking at the other one and finally after i finished reading everything on the it seemed...i got bored enough experiment with something else. :)

    @jacquelien: it's so funny, put a kid's photo in their work and they go bananas over it. too cute. From now on I’m taking a head shot of each kiddo at the start of each year to use all over the place.

    @mr.e: twas easy peasy, believe it or not. i am a powerpoint junkie, especially the latest version. it just keeps getting better. I do all my graphics stuff with it, including the title of this blog—I just work with photos and WordArt or whatever and then save it as a jpeg. For the blogger bit, the template is “Travel” and I just changed and tiled the background image. Let me know if you need more specifics!
