The idea here was making small collage pieces, either beach or garden themed. First painting paper towels with the colors that came to mind for those themes and then cutting them into 1-1/2 inch squares for the color focus of our collages.
An afternoon quickie!
These are my samples, which were mostly beach-y.
Just love the aqua and sand colors this year!
Then the magenta and gold.
and, card-sized, a bit of a naval theme.
A humid day, it was a challenge to get our paper towels to dry.
Summer break and trying to catch-up with a few projects that need to be done. Working on the calendar page for the Study Group's 2015 calendar. Now to make final adjustments and have it printed.
And, as if i needed something else to do, i found this little project from http://daisyyellow.squarespace.com. It's called "Index Card-a-Day and that's what you do, following the prompts she gives you. Mine are very simple but just something else to make you think and keep you creating. And...you might come up with something you like! Just fun!
My love of nature and love of paper have influenced my love of drawing, painting and making things for as long as I can remember. For me, there is excitement in the visual pleasure I get from copying the beauty of nature. The colors. The gentleness. With my artwork, I seek to inspire and enlighten the viewer.
