This above page was made in August.. the end of summer.
This page was inspired by Daisy Yellow's overlapping collage style. These were all items, including the picture of the woman, that I found in the hallway on the floor at the school I teach at. The picture of the woman was from a napkin.
How do YOU salvage a page when it is not going in the direction you'd like? Do you just toss it? Do you make the most of it and then move on? I started with a watercolor doodle:
And then, I added some black ink, white scribble paint and then it just got out of control. I ended up covering up large parts of it with other papers and magazine pictures. Oh well! Sometimes you just keep going with your pages and see where they take you.
