Thank You for Calling the Opium Den...






available in my etsy shop today! ♥

"Thank You for Calling the Opium Den"
(this is Viv speaking, how may I direct your call?)

I just started a new moleskine to use as a springboard for new collage ideas...this piece started out as a page in my book, using traditional cut & paste collage and then continued to morph and grow digitally, into the psychedlic spectacular you see here.

This is an 11 x 8.5 inch collage featuring a voyeuristic view into Viv's Opium Den. It's truly a psychedelic feast for the eyes, featuring mushrooms, rainbows, shooting stars in candy colors, and a bevy of swirling, twirling flowers, meandering to and fro. And perched atop a rather large toadstool, just as dainty as can be, is Viv! Sporting her jaunty purple cap with a fluffly little magenta feather, serving up Opium hot and fresh every day with a dollop of sass, a wink and a smile! She's the go to gal for all your Opiate needs...now put that in your pipe and smoke it!

oooh!!! i love it! ♥ your illustrations are so amazing all on their own, but this really adds an additional element of texture and interest, i love how you used old book pages for the dresses, that looks awesome, and what a good idea with the white out! i would definitely keep going with this style, i love it! and i love the mother's little hat, reminds me of a dainty acorn :D

I had no idea you had a blog as well! I'm glad you were honored by my post. Sometimes I wonder if it is okay to blog about artists I discover—if they would approve.

How did you even know I posted about you?

Well, your blog is just as fabulous as your work. I am going to add it to my blogroll.

I love the stars in the picture and how they are all shooting out different colors.
