The art of collage


A collage (From the French: coller, to glue) is a work of formal art, primarily in the visual arts, made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.

I have been drooling over these amazing collages by Kellie at Cashon & Co. for months now. Every time she posts a new one I'm in complete awe.  Don't you think they would make fabulous ads for a Department Store or Boutique?

Yes, I enjoy her collages and wish I could figure out the program used to make them. Some sites are not Polyvore freindly.

d. I discovered both your blogs at the exact same time, and for about a month, thought you two were neighbors! (duh)
