I can’t get enough of the old photos, especially groups like this one. Smile, ladies!
Sometimes I will alter the colors digitally in collages, but here I used different colored tissue paper over the text pieces and placed the image of the group on top.
I can’t seem to get enough of birds these days. I love it when I’m sitting by the window and see the cardinals eating the dried seed heads in the garden, or hear the nightingales singing in the trees. A few times this summer, when I was awake in the middle of the night, I’d hear one lone nightingale off somewhere in the dark singing its beautiful song. Lovely. I guess I’ve gotten to that age where these simple things make me smile. Along those lines, I offer this collage.
Finally back at work on some new collages. This is a digital piece, all done on the computer, using much of the old books pages, letters and images I’ve been collecting and scanning. The flower basket is a black and white image that I hand colored. Hope you like it! Oh, and I’m having some blank notecards made with this design, as well as an 8″ x 10″ print ready for framing – they’ll be available for sale soon.
