A blue folder I keep some of my short stories and poetry in was looking kind of blah, and I had a little time today, so I collaged on it. The background is a photocopy of a Chuhuly glass exhibit I got from the paper, enhanced with a bit more color, and cut into a heart shape. Of course, Chuhuly's glass art needs no enhancing, but a photocopy does! The girl is a photocopy of a drawing I did experimenting with water soluble oil pastels on w/c paper. I kind of like them, but only for small drawings. The crow is a photocopy of a drawing done with watercolor crayon, also experimenting, with a paper glaze overlay. Not as interesting to work with as w.s. oil pastels. After they were glued onto the folder cover, I slathered it with Mod Podge to seal it. I figured it was ruined because the paper buckled, but after it dried it was flat and ok. Whew!
A glass heart, a girl and a crow. I don't know how they are related, but it isn't as boring as the plain blue. She's a little toothy though. :) I wonder what the crow is screeching about?
Wishing you peace and love in your days.
