Welcome to Sunday Sundries! I have much to celebrate this week and I’m so happy you stopped by. If you have something to share, please feel free to add it to the link-up at the end of this post.
Today, I present my botanical collage. I recently discovered a beautiful IG feed by sarah_notes_._._._ in which she posts her most amazing and intricate collages filled with real flowers and all types of ephemera.
The first time I saw her work, I was smitten. They are not just paper collages, but 3D collages of paper, with artfully placed objects.
I was so inspired, I decided to try my hand at this fascinating art form. I think it struck the collector/scrapper chord within me. It makes me think of a scrapbook page somehow brought to life, and I believe this will be the beginning of many collage creation adventures.
I processed this image with kk_melancholy which adds a pink/mauve tone to images, and I like it with the tones in the paper, the flower petals, and the bulbs.
I believe my Gift from a Friend fits this collage category beautifully as well don’t you?
So what am I celebrating this week (other than my new-found love of 3D collage?)
Well, I’m living a creative life. That thought popped into my head the other morning and it was kind of like a revelation! No big expectations … I’m simply living a creative life …
- I create something every.single.day.
- The online community that has embraced, inspired, and encouraged me.
- Spring is on it’s way in my part of the world.
- I picked a bouquet of pussywillows.
- Spring bulbs, and the promise they hold.
- Light-filled days (and evenings).
Now, what are you celebrating?
