Hi everyone! Happy Friday! This week flew by and I am just now getting the chance to sit down and visit with you. How has life been treating you? I wanted to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for the sweet and encouraging comments left after my last post. It's always a bit scary to share my artwork - so please know that I greatly appreciate the support! Art is such a core part of me. When I actually take time to do it, I am amazed at how it fills me with happiness and peace. I was so pleased with the last collage that I did a second one. I snapped pics of my progress with my phone to document the evolution of the piece.
Similar to the last project - I started by collaging bits of vintage ephemera to the inside of an old book cover.
Enter my muse (another Anthropologie model) who I painted over, inked her face and hair and added scrapbook papers for her dress. You can also see in the upper right hand corner I added some pink acrylic paint to start balancing the color composition.
The last details were added to complete her, including a sweet antique Australian stamp (a little shout-out to my homeland!), a jeweled crown and of course a bird. Gotta have a bird.
I stamped the cover of the book with this chickadee stamp and added the word "fly".
So there you have it, another little collage project that I was able to complete in a couple of days during Claire's naptime. So much more fun than folding laundry!
Have a beautiful weekend!
