Cat Collage

Collage is an old art form, and it is my belief that it’s one that in a woman’s genes.

Along with decoupage and scrapbooking it allows us to show off our flair for organizing objects in a form pleasing to the eye.

About Eileen Bergen


  1. I am new to arts/crafts-just discovering my creativity at age 54. I have studied many mixed media sites, as well as many other craft sites, and your cat/bird collage is the most beautiful that I have seen to date. My gosh, if I develop a smidgen of your talent, I will consider myself a success! Thank you so much.

      I only started crafting in earnest at about the same age as you!
