Welcome! Artfully Musing is a blog dedicated to sharing art and the techniques and products used. I'll be showcasing collage, altered and mixed media art as well as miniature. I hope you'll check back often and are inspired. Thanks for visiting! Laura

NOTICE: AlphaStamps has moved to a new website. Unfortunately, I was not aware the product links in my blog posts would not forward to the products on the new website. This has affected both the links in the posts and my Collage Sheet & Digital Image Set Catalogs. I ask for your patience while I work to fix the links. I’ll be fixing the newest posts first working back in time. Lastly, I’ll fix the catalogs. In the meantime, if you encounter broken links and need to finding something you can either use the name of the product to search the new AlphaStamps.net site or you can email me using the “Email Me” button at the top of the left column of the blog and I will do what I can to help.

Arabian Nights Triptych

Lovely ladies are dancing the night away in this piece.  To create the general scene I used a collage sheet called “Deco Movie Palace”.  I layered it twice on light weight chipboard plus adding other layers of the same image over the original layers using foam core tape to pop everything out.  This gave me lots of depth.  Of course the ladies and lanterns are from my Midnight at the Oasis and Rock the Kasbah Collage Sheets.  The gold bits are buttons.  The top of the piece is made by turning curtain chipboard die-cuts on their side and adding an onion dome die-cut chipboard piece to tie them together.
