There’s so much work sitting around I haven’t been so great posting in chronological order. I usually like to write a bit about each piece and post it accordingly, but I completely forgot about this one!
My good bloggin’ buddy Chongolio sent me a sweet mail package a while ago full of collage pieces, stickers, and even rice paper! I immediately went to my sketchbook to use the stuff he sent. I made three pages all together, one with blackout poetry, one with an orange tag, and one to accompany a list I had just made. Well, when all that was said and done and I was satisfied I went straight to work on a bigger piece. I wanted to use the old book pages he sent, because they were browning on the edges and seemed mysterious!
I kept things simple when it came to color, but added elements of stitchings, text, and my own drawings. I photocopied an old sketchbook page from the summer, and it was perfect for this Polynesian theme that the book pages called for. It’s small, about 9 x 12 but it has a lot of character! Happy humpday artlings!
