Lately I've been noticing wonderful fabric collages and I finally succumbed to the mystique of this lovely artform. I just had to grab a pair of scissors and root around in my sewing basket for snippets of lace, and any tiny bit of flower I might find, and then figure out what papers I had (lots of music sheet pages), what rubber stamp images (I knew I wanted a bird of some sort) and the quote was actually what launched the whole piece in the first place, so I didn't have to source out a quote specifically for the piece.
Well it took not long at all and was very satisfying to say the least. There's not much to it and as I have to get back to the pressing things (creatively speaking) that are calling, I don't have time right this moment to play with the collage artform. But I do look forward to revisiting this experience. So relaxing. It's a wonderful way to settle down.
