My inspiration piece...combination of a greeting card and photo from a magazine on wall art.
I totally changed my paper collage from my last post! I didn't like the blue veins but at the time it was a good effort to play with the design. So back to the drawing board!
I liked the orange leaf but then started playing with some other papers I had printed. This was a piece of fabric I tried for background.
I did audition different backgrounds and decided I liked this deli paper that I stenciled. So I fused it down on a piece of batting and started to lay out different papers.
Still playing with papers and layout.
I liked this piece better before I quilted the background. I don't use variegated threads often but decided to do just that...why? Heck, if I know!
So this was what/how I ended up! I'm not happy with the background quilting...but this piece isn't going anywhere other than in my sewing room with my other pieces from Hilary's online class.

So on to the next collage! Have an idea but they usually don't turn out or get me in trouble! Guess we'll see!
