More Smash book pages using odds and ends...
the bottom is a postcard showing a still life by
Frida Kahlo. I adore the color!
Same page with postcard flipped up.
On the back of the postcard,
I wrote out an excerpt from a book about Frida,
and created a watercolor inspired by
Mexican folk art designs.
Collage on the facing page.
This is not my usual style of collage, as it is
more of a grid-type composition. I usually
overlap the elements in my collages.
The colored pencil design on the right
is inspired by Native American beading and embroidery.
I believe I was researching the Delaware (Lenape) but
it was years ago, and I can't find my source now...
see how long my scraps can be buried in a
box, tub, book or tin?!
Any time I need inspiration, I can always
find it in ancient, classical or modern art!
What inspires you?
