Had a lovely day with the girlies yesterday. They scrapbooked and I worked on some collages I had started. The set below is my first diptych attempt. Technically I should hing them but I haven't decided if they would look better framed. I'm also contemplating selling them on Etsy. I started with layering some colors on the canvases and had fun with using some sequin waste and stencils for the background. I layered on some scrapbook paper (including a fabulous piece of embossed felt), old papers, words torn out of magazines, a bird and nest cut out of paper napkins, some not so old pieces of lace, Maya Road chipboard trees, a couple international stamps and some little metal frames. I got stuck at one point because I had a large area that was way too much pink. Not sure why I am in such a pink mode lately. I usually stay away from it but I am having fun with it. Need to play with some orange next maybe.
This is another collage I did a few months ago. I even used a piece of baby wipes saved from previous painting wipe ups. I need to flatten it but thinking about putting it on Etsy too.
