I've been needing some more art for my walls and have had fun doing some collage work. This is one of the pieces I finished recently. It will hang in our back entrance, a mud-cum-laundry room. I used old music sheets, dictionary pages, and a bird cut from an old book. Finding the embellishments was like a treasure hunt - an old earring in the gable, a key charm, a bit of ribbon and bird-themed postage stamps.
Detail of key and gable. I'm finding collage to be fun, but challenging too, in how to put everything together so it works well. I'm not one to over embellish, but sometimes I wonder if I should push myself to add just a little bit more.
