My Art and 5 minute art by Alison Caporimo

Recently, I began creating these

feminine chic collages on paper

utilizing some favorite materials:

linen, silk, vintage French lace,

vintage pointe shoe ribbon, old french

documents, and vintage books.

These will be in my etsy shop very soon!

Here’s a peek at some pieces I

offered at a recent art show.

I am soooo loving the blurred line

between art and craft right now!

I feel so much peace when I create

that it doesn’t bother me when the work

can be time consuming (feels like play time to me).


Sometimes it can be gratifying to

churn out a project or two quickly.

If time is not on your side,

consider this

super sweet, super cute

little jewel of a craftlicious book:
