Some of my most creative ideas sneak in the back door when I am sleeping and I hardly hear them come in until I realize I am in the middle of them. But others come riding in, making all kinds of ruckus, on the backs of other projects. This was the case with my new collage sheet Bat Babies & Their Garden of Gloomflowers, for my Etsy shop Velvet Revived. As I was working on my last collage sheet The Rootababies, I was getting ideas for making some kind of bat creatures as their play-mates!
And so, today, I introduce you to their world...

The Bat Babies and their flowers of Gloom can come
to live with you and make your art projects just a

All of my collage sheets, printable invitations & other
fun and decorative projects are available for
instant download, and therefore, instant gratification!

use by creating a "Digital Oddities" section for my
And now, back to the mental drawing board,
where my next dark idea is starting to pick at me...
