Collage


My most recent obsession... collage. I have no idea what I am doing; I just find images I like and mix them up together. Up until now, I have been using only paper on paper. However, in my most recent one, I added some tissue paper, tore it off in some places, and added some cloth flowers. It has a little bit of a 3-D effect. That's it above.

The remaining photos are some collages that I made a few years ago, and just found packed away. These are my very first attempts.

This one was done when I was in a crazy mood, and wanted to try abstract design:


"Bloom Where You Are Planted" was my attempt to cheer myself up after moving away from a city I loved:


The final two were inspired by a vacation in the Caribbean:



I really didn't think I would post these. I thought I would be embarrassed by my amateur attempts. I see so many accomplished artists' works in the blog world. But, hey, this is where I am! So, I am going to put it out there. Everyone has to start somewhere... right?

I think they're GREAT !! I love collage as well. I especially love the bloom where you grow one.
As goes with anything in life the more you do something the more accomplished and confident you become. Collage On !

The Caribbean one is my favorite - the one that says "Beautiful Isle." Very pretty...
