I bought this little frame while antiquing this weekend. I fell in love with its delicate design and shape and I knew that I had to make a collage to fit inside of it.
The frame is lightweight and made of wood. It has a delicate gold filigree design with red accents on the front. It measures 5" round and 3/4" thick. It's ready to hang (This little frame has glass).
The image was created by combining vintage images, decorative papers and stamps.
This piece is titled, signed, and dated on the back.
You can purchase this collage at my Etsy shop. http://sarahogren.etsy.com/ SOLD

I found this little window box frame and loved the fact that it could both hang on the wall and stand alone as a sculpture. This piece measures 5.25 x 6" (11.5" if the doors are completely open). The frame has doors that open and shut and this piece can either hang on your wall or sit on a flat surface. The frame has been entirely collaged, painted and stamped. Two rusted metal stars adorn the front. A piece of thin plexi glass covers the image.The image has been collaged using decorative papers, vintage images, paint, and stamps.

I came up with this idea after thinking about shelving to display some of the sculptures and other items that I have in my home. All of the shelves available are plain, and I wanted something a little more special. Something that was a sculpture in and of its self.This listing is for the shelf only.This is a 22 x 4" floating collage shelf.I have collaged a pre-made floating shelf with a variety of decorative papers, stamps, and oil pastels. The shelf has been collaged on all sides and the top and bottom. I wrapped the shelf in fine guage copper wire (the wire lays flat and will not interfere with the objects set on the shelf). Along the outside front edge are five tiny metal frames with vintage images inside. All hardware and the instructions to hang this shelf are included.

This is my newest collage titled, "Me and the Bees". I think that that this piece would be great in a nursery or little kids room.

The body of the angel is covered in collaged images of butterflies, bees, birds, dragonflies, a turtle, a bunny, a frog, and a caterpillar (everything that you might see in a garden). The wings are made of metal and have two cream colored beads attached.

The idea for collaging this birdhouse came after I discovered this great birdhouse shape with it's interesting metal details. The birdhouse was originally a light grey color and I thought that collaging the surface would make it even more special. I have been inspired by other artists who have collaged birdhouses in publications such as Somerset Studio, and have always wanted to do one of my own.
