Hello everyone. A little quickie post today. I made this small (10cm x 10cm) block canvas very quickly last weekend, when I was struggling to get my creative mojo to cooperate on some of my other pieces. I needed a distraction – so a wee little collage was done and dusted in record time. I can always rely on butterflies to inspire me (translation : save me when I can’t figure out what to do, or need to cover something up when I have made a boo-boo). Wings make everything better 🙂
This piece was just roughly torn pieces of text and patterned papers, a vintage image and some words cut out of book, outlined with a permanent pencil for a bit of definition. I added some wonky scalloping on the bottom and top too.
The world needs lots and lots of hope right now. It seems like it is all we have to hold on to some days, doesn’t it? And hold on we must. Otherwise we are lost. It does get rather hard to summon up even a tiny speck of hope though when you turn on the news or read the papers. Or watch reality TV. Ugh.
Nevertheless, I hope for great things. I wish them for you too 🙂
Thanks for dropping by x
