The Garden


Hi Friends! I made this collage last night...it's so funny, it took me an eternity to come up with an idea. I finally do and then in the end it is nothing like the original idea! That is art for ya! When I am working I have stuff all over the place on my desk...paint, papers, markers, barely enough room to find a spot to glue my images! Has this ever happened to you? You have an image that is crucial to the design of the collage...like someones head for instance..and then it gets lost! Lost forever, never to be seen again until after the collage is completed with another head you had to search for to replace the head you lost.....after you also spent an hour trying to find the lost head before you searched for a new one! One time, that happened and I found it after I went through the whole process of the above. Guess where it was?? Stuck to the bottom of the collage! Where else!??? No wonder I could't find it! Hope you all have a lovely day!

hahaha, don't lose your head! I guess most of the time the final image turns out different from what you envisioned... sometimes better, sometimes not. But we will never know the difference, we just love them all!

Love ya,

Molly

Ooooooh, Shelly! I ADORE this beautiful garden and it's lovely fairy! It's full of lovely color and joy.

Yup! I've lost a few images along the way. It's like they just up and disappear!!! Never to be seen again!!! I sometimes think it's my Muse having a bit of fun with me! Love You Too! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Great garden with dancing lady ... just what I like to do in the garden ... enjoy and dance! :D

How funny. I'm the same way. I start working at my table and gradually I end up with a little space of about 5 inches to work in. I have a swivel chair, so sometimes I turn around and start to work on the top of my trash can. Sheesh, talk about losing stuff. I can relate. Love this piece. Take care, Susan.

Sounds like the story of my life! Luckily the replacement is usually better than what I had originally intended - coincidence? Maybe not. . .!

This is beautiful, Shelly. I smiled as I read your comments. At a quick gland, on my desk at the moment--my Wacom tablet, a calendar to keep me straight, notepaper, Prismacolor pencils, a swap journal I'm working in, my personal journal, Wacom pen, box of rings for a journal I intend to make, hand lotion, glue stick, external hard drive, phone, kitchen timer (so I don't get absorbed and burn the cookies and don't hear the stove timer), Wacom pen in its stand, and standing file with 6 notebooks, my book of quotes, my address book, a circle journal I'm working on with my granddaughter, and....do I need to go on????!!!

indybev said...

Oh geez! That's supposed to say "at a quick glance" NOT gland!

Marit said...

This is so cheerful! I love the floral motif. You do excellent work, I can't believe you just started doing collage recently. I just love getting to know such artistic gals all over the globe just by hopping around flickr.
