Lydia, I am glad you shared your ideas with us too my favorite was also the self-portrait weavings- very cool.  I also like the Collagraphs- I have been thinking about an idea to make architecturally inspired matbaord collages, and then making them into collagraphs and collaging found images.  Hopefully I'll get the chance to test my ideas out on kids soon, so I can share some lessons and images with you all!
Oh, and Trish I spent some time at your blog- wow you have some amazing stuff!- thanks for sharing!

Hi Lydia.. You have lovely work on Artsonia...especially the ceramic 
self-portrait weavings (neat idea) and the animal eyes in pastels. 
Thank you for sharing with us. Bunki
