Collage - Flower

This collage was an experiment - it is one that sat, partially finished, for months.  I liked it, but wasn't sure how to finish it. It is feels so different from some of my other work.

I experimented with paint and color

With materials and technique

With words and composition
In the end, I like the overall effect.  I like the use of words, the overall theme, the brightness and color.  But this one seem more of a struggle for me.  I don't think it's really my "style." 
It was bugging me that it sat unfinished for so long, I couldn't totally abandon it.  So I added the back, used more brightly colored patterned paper on the sides and call it complete.
Now, I can move back to some of my other work.  Stay tuned for more collage...


  1. I like it! Especially the way you used the words and colors. It's a beautiful and random flower!

  2. Each petal is so different, I really like that about it. Sometimes it's good to do things out of our style or comfort zone, it really stretches us.

  3. Bring it by...let's put it where the houses were!
