and was paired with my long time glittersister friend KATE.
The first two beautiful bird collages are what Kate made for me. I love birds and she knows it, so that makes them extra special because she thought of my interests when she made them.
Love it! It's like a water dancer ballet.
NOW, here's the lesson learned. I made this owl collage (not part of the swap) using a preprinted background from an advertising brochure. But, after I glued on the owls, I wanted to add a moon behind the top two, so I glued one on. I failed to take into consideration the preprinted background had a treeline, and I put the moon in front of the treeline. What???? Didja ever?? Nah. So, since the glue I was using had already dried I couldn't remove the moon, and I cut a million and a half tiny leaves and put them on the topmost branches and tried to hide the edges of the moon. Nope! Duh! Too cluttered. And discarded.
So, the moral of this long, drawn-out tale is ....well, ........ look before you leap?? Be sure before you glue?? Pay attention?? Don't be in such a hurry to get finished?? I think it's kind of like "measure twice, cut once". I've made that mistake plenty of times.
....and these are the two collages I did for the swap and sent to Kate.....
Hmmmmmm, maybe I'll paint today. Or maybe not. xoxoxo
