I signed up for many 2012 art segments that are L O N G while I was S H O R T on time.  I am going to complete (my New Year's Resolution) these classes before moving onto the 2012 art classes that I signed up for.  So my lovelies, what you will see will be, in honesty, named 2012 art - in order to honor the teachers.  Enjoy!  I sure have loved the process of transformation inherent in each piece, many still in progress.  LOVIES, Samara

These pictures are a collage of my fav. pics from a home magazine.  The next two  pics are my personal favorites of the entire page.  I loved the pink-ness and the glasses and the fruit water!
I'd say I enjoy these two more than the finished product - isn't that the way sometimes..."we love a part better than the whole"...great all time metaphor of life!


I loved seeing the pics that I put on the bench as well in the reflection of the mirror (and also hanging the window from the house in the midst of the trees with the hanging basket in the mirror as well.)  Perhaps my dream garden!
For anyone who knows about the micro-living in this size house below, this was a fav design for me.  Google mini living - it is an environmentally great thing and transportable (so you don't need a permit to construct.)  The originator has a great book and a very neat hour long youtube worth watching.  That is why this little white home spoke to me.  Contemplating this type of living for retirement.
And how great would an outside claw tub be!  Ummm I guess Arizona (Sedona-ish) not where I live in Ontario with 3 feet of snow! (unless of course I had a hot tub beside it! haha)

and VOILA the final collage piece!

  2. I absolutely love these garden collages. They're gorgeous and look like a shifting scene in a dream.

    (Found you through PPF though I didn't link my last post.)

  3. Lovely collages with really beautiful nature atmosphere!

  4. I love your collages. You have created a special place that I would love to visit.

  5. Lovely collages, Samara. They are stunning!

    Thanks so much for the sweet comment you left on my blog. To answer your question, no, I don't teach collage classes. I mostly just make art for myself and for my Etsy shop. My health is not good so I just do what I can, as I can.


My wish for you is a great day full of laughter! Samara x
