Reprise: Home Companion magazine
From the archives of Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion magazine, the following is reprinted from a paper, scissors, crop article in which I shared the spotlight with Sylvia Luna and Stacie Rife.
Artist’s profile: 2
Sarah Fishburn is a respected collage artist who creates atcs, greeting cards, calendars, altered books, original canvases, and more. She also designs layouts for scrapbooking books and magazines. Her latest projects include Transparent Art, a Somerset Studios book. . . Her signature style features a juxtaposition of text, images of children, and vibrant color.
Family and Friends
(b) An old photo of Sarah’s mom, Jean, plays a prominent role. Sarah combined vintage papers and ephemera with a sheet of transparency washed in red ink as the background for the old photograph. For her second atc, a more modern look is achieved with photo choice, layout, and typography.

(c) Collecting ATCs is a passion for many artists, but discovering inventive ways to display them can be challenging. Collage artist Sarah Fishburn used a blank accordion-fold book as a quick starting point for her ATC holder. Individual photo frames were cut from scrapbooking papers and adhered with torn strips of fabric and vintage buttons sewn into place. Glued to the book is a collaged image of Sarah’s mother as a small child, a Valentine’s Day message to the woman whom the artist calls her “greatest supporter.”

Emerald counts the days until she receives her FREE copy of Pasticcio . . .
on who to check out, where to go, what to see.
So, I have two BIG projects I need to finish by Monday.
You may ask, WHY are you posting? I need help! A recommendation.
About a week or so ago, I realized have I felt fairly discombobulated
for most of 2008 - chalking it up to having a couple of
delightfully art-filled wall calendars, but no
Engagement Calendar to Carry With Me Everywhere.
Can't let it happen again in 2009!
Has anyone seen one that's simply irresistable? Let me know!
If I get a fair number of stylin' recommendations, I'll do a drawing -
for - hmm, how about a TOTALLY FREE copy of the next issue of -
say, Pasticcio? The big 70+ pages HOLIDAY issue of Pasticcio?
You know you want it . . .

pretty kitty dog moon jewelry
Jean Yates, the always entertaining, and equally generous, author of the book LINKS, is a frequent contributor to a rather stacked shelf or so of cool publications targeted to jewelry designers. I really think I need to be her regular model/muse - ya know, like Kate Moss for Calvin Klein? Here, you see me wearing her earrings, her pendant . . .
