Catch the new wave

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

in Digital and Mixed Media Collage

opened its virtual doors today!

but.... with all great waves...sometimes they CRASH
against the SURF...a little too hard. 
Hollie tells me she is moving servers and despite her efforts to troubleshoot for high traffic volumes this will take about 8-10
hours to correct. 

It's worth the wait.

In the meantime, maybe I can entertain you for a bit with a sampling of a few collages I've created from DeviantScrap's crazy fun portfolio.  They'll give you just a wee taste of what's available there.

    I mentioned last week I had been invited to join Hollie Haradon's design team about a month ago.  So I spent a good deal of my creative time over Easter and up until today test driving  a truckload of fun images courtesy of Holliewood Studios.  The kid in the candy shop feeling has never fit me better.

  Then, to put another layer of cherries on top of it all, dear Marsha Jorgensen at Tumblefish Studio also invited me to join her creative team as she launches her career as a designer along side Hollie.  Cartwheels! 

So - here's a sampling -  Since I'm brand spanking new in this role, please let me know what you think...what works and what doesn't, 'cause that's the only way I can learn and hopefully improve!
