suddenly the round card seems quite sensible, doesn't it?!

in comparison with this collage i made for my friend paul, i mean. of course when you first see the photo, it just looks like it is long and narrow; there isn't really a sense of scale. so perhaps i should tell you that this baby measures 5.25 x 24 inches. ...oh yeah...and did i mention it's a birthday card??! :)

it is made entirely of images clipped from magazines, on a framework of a few overlapping sheets of extra long index stock. i THINK it is done...but there is always a chance i will go back and add a little something...we shall see.


  1. It's beautiful! And I imagine it'd be quite a bit easier to make (... unless you can actually find one...) and envelope for this one than the round one.

  2. Who wouldn't love a 2 foot long birthday card? I'm glad you never constrain yourself to size when creating. ;)

  3. LOL...I love it...just hope your friend is local and you don't actually have to post it ;)

  4. I was thinking the same thing as Kristie - I suspect if you mail it, it will take a little bit of extra postage. ;-) Very cool, though!

  5. Looks just perfect for hanging up in just the right narrow space on a wall ... I love it.

  6. Oh, what a beauty!! Love it!

  7. Such a cool collage- you make me want to go cut up some mags and play!

  8. Hi Lauren,

    It's Paul here .... just to let you know that recently I've changed my name. And sex. And moved to Bristol, in the good old U of K.

    So .... if you could hurry up and send my FABULOUS card I'd be everso grateful.
