"Collage: an artistic composition made of various materials
such as paper, cloth or wood, glued on a picture surface."
I see them everywhere... even at McDonald's. I drew
the cup of water I was drinking because it had a collage of
images on it...and because of the circle design.
Joining Elizabeth today for T Tuesday's link up party.

Week 31 of The Documented Life Project:
put a pocket on your page.
I used a vintage library pocket from a thrifted
children's book, and attached it to the scrapbook
Because our cottonwood trees are dropping leaves
already, (and the background had leaves on it)
I decided to put leaves in the pocket. I had made these
a while ago (ok years!) intending to make a small book
from them, but it just didn't happen. I wrote quotes
about August, and autumn on the leaves that are made
from scrapbook paper and painted paper bags.
(These are not cottonwood leaves, by the way)
I've also been working on some art lessons
that are posted on-line by Derwent Academy.
Lesson 5 was painting in watercolor, wet in wet.
I usually paint lightly over dry layers, and over pen
drawings, so this was a little stretch for me.
This is loosely based on some Maple trees in
our back yard...
Just a few weeks of summer left...I have been
hearing a few locusts along with the tree frog chorus.
I need to take more walks and enjoy the warm
weather while it is still here!
