Finding Funky Junk

Just read a post on How to Make a Collage using PicMonkey. Check it out here. I went over to visit and tried it out. The tutorial worked. Here is my 'sample' of using PicMonkey to make a collage. I can see it needs a bit more practice but not bad, not bad at all. Thanks Hani from Craftonary.

and right back to my post for today ...

Not Donna's Funky Junk Interiors (although she is a MAIN inspiration), but garage sales that have great junk. Great heavy and metal green flower frog with spider webs intact. Glass flog for contrast (also gs find)
These finds are from last weekend but it has taken several days to process - had to learn how to use Collages in Picasa and then how to FIND where they were stored on my computer. I miss Picnik.

Trunk look suitcase, rust on clasps and corners, a bit of a dent in one side, lined in faux copies of Eaton's Catalogue pages. Everything works just fine.
After I finally figured out how to get the pictures into a Picasa Collages folder and set up the collages I then had to find where they were, open them in PicMonkey and add frames and watermarks. I am always very happy to find a vintage fan. Love the metal Torcan label.
I am sure with practice I will figure out faster and more straight forward ways to get the collages/watermarks/frames done but it hasn't happened yet.
