i'll fly away
This is a collage I made on Friday night. It started with the idea of "I'll Fly Away" and an idea of how I would accomplish it. Three hours later I had something a million miles from the original idea - it is funny how collages do that sometimes.
On the piano keyboard it says "The Very First Lesson." on the lower-right artifact it says "A Study In Scales" the dove's song is "Joy Ride," the insect is a firefly, and the map says unexplored territory
Strange Dreams is an older collage that I've never photographed.
To see more collages and more stuff that I've added to my craft gallery [including more tin can votives (which I will try to write a tutorial for)] go here: http://www.pbase.com/marybell/other_outlets
I had a busy weekend. I worked on many, many projects and did some cleaning. I also finished my book for book club, but far and away the biggest chunk of my weekend was spent on a photoshoot for a friend's children. I hope the shots turn out nice - so far the ones I've worked on disappoint me.
Tomorrow I will meet my sister April about an hour and half away (about half way between the two of us) at an apple orchard to pick apples and have a good time with my girls. I'm sure that will yield many photos.
