Tracing my raven drawing......then choose from the gessoed watercolor paper backgrounds I made last week.
I like the one with orange, red and green.
Apply the tissue raven to the background, add more collage with magazine paper, get a little tired of tearing magazine "feathers". I cut a wing out of batik fabric and used black and green acrylics to paint the raven....drying now. We'll see how this evolves! [shadow of my arm in the photo....I kind of like that!]
Another collage in progress on cloth background....hence the wrinkles...

We gessoed watercolor paper and canvas (which had been stitched together). Then we played with acrylic paints to make backgrounds.
I like all mine, but this little indigo has a Japanese feel, wabi sabi. I really like it!
I'll be back to show how these collages develope as the class progresses!

This past winter, I had sent my canvas journal on its way with this collaged cover. [above]
Turning the page , a collage by me, "Just her type" across from one by Shari with a 3-dimensional dragon fly, the page is edged with sparkly ribbon and crocheted cotton lace. Her's says "Life is Fun" and shows a girl making huge bubbles!
The double page from Carmen is loaded with delights for those of us who enjoy sewing and fashion! The dangling wooden spool, hooks and eyes and needles are collaged with vintage crochet, lace, and pattern pieces on a floral fabric background! Wow!
Two pages from Gemma feature decades of fashion, art and glamour! I love the pink feathered hat!
Karen gifts me with a collage of a cottage with a wonderful blue door, and the strong inner spirit found through meditation and delight in nature! Inpiring, truly!
Artist Doreen, our mandala artist designed a special mandala for each of us. Mine is "BE", something I am trying to learn! This page really glows!
These are the inside pages of the back cover, which I did before sending it. "Time is a dressmaker specializing in alterations" --Faith Baldwin.

Within a couple of weeks, we should be delighted to have our original canvas book/art journal come "home". When I get mine, I will post the pages on this blog!
