C is for Collages

Looking through my archives and cleaning out, I wanted to share some collages, that I have done. I tried to get creative at times.  I think they all look pretty cool and wanted to put a post showing you too how you can be creative with your pics.  I have dowloaded Picasa 3. It is very user friendly and has the option to make your collages. I also realized Miss Jenny's alphabet party this week will be the letter C.
Kitchen in the summer 

We can all recall the red paint incident

Simple make up tips hereHaving fun with Modge podge
So happy the day my Mom sent my new Red scale
First time using green spray paint
More Modge
Sharing Alex's bedroom makeover boy at camp for the first time, he had a blast!
I really like this one, outdoor summer time
My New Fall colors

This diet lasted less than a week!

This picture here was superimposed pretty cool!

So you see I have had lots of fun playing with my pictures. You too can be a CREATIVE CAT! You ought to try it, see what you come up with.

I think since I started blogging I am getting a little better each time. Some days are better than others.  My Kodak Easy share Z915 has been pretty good to me. My Mom bought it for my birthday back in APril.

 I am joining Miss Jenny this week for her Alphabet party. The Letter C. Thanks Miss Jenny I look forward to class this week.

I love your Recipe for Success. I enjoyed looking at some of your older posts through pictures. I'm sure Miss Jenny will give you an A+ as long as she doesn't have a bee in her bonnet. :o) La

Your collages look awesome! I don't believe I've ever made one, I guess I'll have to give it a try one of these days.

You got it going on with those collages! I've made a few in Picnik but not as fancy as yours. I love your red scale!!! I'm on the lookout for an old scale.

I love all of your collages! You got skeelz when it comes to photography, too! Is there anything you *can't* do ?! I've gotta learn how you do this ... through Piknik? I gotta find a "c" to share ... Hmmmm. Take care, Becca

Fun Collages! I liked all of them, but loved the last one! Picasa 3 is so much fun! It can become addicting (speaking for me)!!

I love the "red" painted letter in your son's room. I've been lookin' for one for my own son's room but haven't found one yet. I'd love to know where you got it from? Thanks

Yes, you are clever AND very creative, Debbie! I've always loved your collages and do need to figure out how to do that on the computer. The last time I made collages, it was for my older boys high school graduation albums. With glue & scissors! Can you believe that?! LOL

Thanks for sharing, Debbie!!! Always get so many ideas from you and your blog!!

I use Picasa too, didn't know there was a 3, I will have to check and see what I am using. You are so computer savvy! I love all your collages, always have! Now when you say you were cleaning up does that mean eliminating some photos. I want to eliminate some but don't want to delete any off my blog, very time consuming to rid of the ones I'm not using. Where do you find the time? I do find Picasa very user friendly though for sure!

Wonderful collages. I know, Picasa is so much fun to work in. It's a great tool and makes even my photos look good.

That white plate in the first photo, I have the same one and love it :)

Grrrrrrrrrrrr... when will they get this commenting thing fixed in Blogger. It's really slowing me down. Looks like you are doing the same as I. But, then I love to play with my pictures and edit. Isn't Picasa 3 fun...Have you tried the PicNik part yet. That's fun too.... Already did the upgrade. Also, having to clean up my photo files...icks....way too many to move to the new computer. But, I just don't want to part with many. What does that make me a "Picture Hoarder"? Oh, well, so be it.

Edit on my friend, your pictures are always an inspiration to me.

Hey Kiddo - I just found this explaination of sorts. I have been working in Picasa for a while, but hadn't check my settings.... Can't wait till they get this all figured out.

These are wonderful. I think you need more than the software. You also need to have great pictures and to know how to put them together.

Hi Debbie! You are the master of the collage. These are amazing!

I like how you do different ones for different subjects. I have mostly seen them of flowers and this looks so neat seeing the progression in some of them.

Thanks for linking to Alphabe-Thursday this week Miss Debbie.

You are always a treasured guest on any meme of mine!
