Princess Collage


Hello Everyone,
I'd like for you to meet a new friend. Meet Princess Collage.
She's from the Kingdom of Canvas Prime where everything is white and plain.
Princess Collage hates waste so she is out on while and crazy adventure
to take scraps, bits, and pieces back to Canvas Prime
and turn it on it's ear with recycled fabulous mixed media and collage art.
Okay enough with this. I have been doing collage for over 20 years now.
I love it. I find it very relaxing and fun. It's filled with flaws just
like me he he he!!! I take the stuff that nobody wants,
and turn it into art for my walls. Sometimes it doesn't even make it
to my walls before someone purchases it. I have learned to make prints of
my work before I sell now he he he! You can see more of my collage art at Fineartregistry.com or
painted-words.com Type in Vanessa Brantley-Newton.
Oh and yes, this is ruthless self promotion for my Etsy store.
Princess Collage is a story that I wrote and I am in the process of
creating the illustrations for the book. I'll keep you posted.
