Today, I struggled to mother and keep house because this just started flowing. It is hard for me to stop when a piece is coming together so wonderfully. I have never done a collage quite like this one, and I am so pleased. I am also so pleased I could finish this tonight. Once I have started, and it isn't just right, I struggle to rest until it is. I hope you like this. It just is me.
and here is how it all started!
This was originally an image transfer gone wrong! So, I began to collage scraps together.
then I felt it needed to be stronger, so I added lots of masking tape, and painted!
and painted, and painted and painted!
and scratched a photo, painted some more, and painted some more, and finished with more paper and detail with pen!
I am going to make Valentines cards from this piece. To do this, print a nice copy, and matte, and glue onto a card! Completely original, and personal! I heart it, and Love (truly) Grows in Small Places.
