I joined a swap where I had to make the whole collage out of magazines. It was a nice challenge. I kept on wanting to add paint or stitches. This is what I came up with:
Next time, I will try to make the contrast between the background and tree silhouette a little stronger; but I really like it. I may have to make some of these as holiday presents! The “stitching” is my favorite.
Then, I was inspired by this packing tape technique that pretty lily was using. I made a whole bunch because they are fast and fun. They are slowly finding homes. I sent the following one to pretty lily, since she was my inspiration.
And I sent this minimal one to Jon Foster since I hear that he was the IUOMA member who “discovered” the technique.
Ah, so many more many more magazine pages to put packing tape on and then quickly lift to see what randomness stays on the tape!
This last photo is just because I bought a new coat when I was out looking for rolodex containers. I just love the gold and the color combos that it encourages me to make. I’m holding our local clock tower in my hand no less.
And before departing, I want to send positive energy to my fellow Washingtonians that are at our state capitol protesting the budget cut proposals which are nothing less than drastic and inhumane.
Have a good week,
