Ephemera and more!

Hi! I am Michelle and I have been asked to post on Whip Up about Mixed Media and Paper Arts. I am a mixed media collage portrait artist and I run my own business creating personal commissions for people and selling my own pieces on the web. I have my own blog where I talk about my work and inspirations. I also have a blog called Creative Swoon where I feature creative people and projects in all genres as well as feature an amazing Etsy artist/vendor each week. I cant wait to share some of my favorite artists and finds with you! The world of collage has really exploded as of late, and there are so many talented artists out there. Image from Silverfishes

To begin I would like to share a few great links to resources. While going to flea markets and rummaging through estate sales is fun, these sites are happy to provide outstanding ephemera, photos, book pages and items that are perfect for collaging with.
