My First Attempt
I just added this second collage at the suggestion of one of my faithful readers, Julie B. :)
Good morning and happy Saturday! Because of the encouragement I got from some of you a couple of days ago, I put together my first collage yesterday. The last one I remember doing was in Junior High where we had a shoebox and decorated the inside with photos and objects that we felt described ourselves best. I remember I loved doing it and even taught it as an art project for children several years ago.
Anyways, here's my first attempt. I kind of like it, but know I'll look back on it later and wonder, "What was I thinking"?! lol.
Oh, btw, how would you like to put together a collage this weekend? I would love to see it! If you create one, post it on your blog and leave a link in the comments section so we can all pay your blog a visit and "ooh" and "ahh" over what you've done. :0)
P.S. I've had a couple of questions in the comments section about my thought process for this collage, so here you go:
I wanted to do something a little romantic so I clipped a rose from our garden and then googled a quote to go with it. I found a song sheet that had a love song on it and then clipped leaves from the roses stem to place along the side. I wanted the collage to have more of an "earthy" feel so I chose a scrap of fabric I use for photo backdrops that's a cream color. Oh, and then when I edited it I put a soft haze over it to add to the romantic affect. :0)
