Just a Little Break

My Blue Bird of Happiness.
I created this one second but really like it the best.

I took just a little break from my usual 3D work to play with some 'flat' stuff.  Spent a lovely afternoon with Lynne Larkin and friends creating two collages.  I so enjoyed, that I came home and made a couple more.  Great opportunity to use all those bits of scraps and ephemera that we save.

I created the pieces in pairs, using the same papers in the background and similar elements for ephemera.

Now all framed and ready to hang.  Thanx Michael's for having such a great sale just when I needed it. Had lots of frames at home already but I liked these as matching sets.
Morning Song was the first piece created.
Love the soft colors which allows the bird to
come forward and sing.

Who doesn't enjoy seeing a butterfly on wing.  But
seldom do we get to capture them..polymer gel helps. 

Fleur du SoleilYeah!  All this stuff was in my stash.  After I found
the bird and sunflower print, I created the
background with lots of spring greens
to complement the centerpiece.

    1. Thanx Patty. Using some of the techniques we learned together. But I think this is really more me than the abstract stuff we did earlier.
