Experimenting



Going out on a limb here...
...knowing you will be kind to me...



...but I am having fun with my Experimental Art e-course...
especially the paper and collage lessons...



It is has really been fun to use all my old papers and embellishments...



...and Amelia and the other participants have been so encouraging...



...Do you recognize this beauty from the family album?
(I made a photocopy for use in the collage)

I plan to get busy with more art lessons this weekend...
Hope you have some fun plans this weekend too!

Laura, your mixed media collage is fantastic! I love the colour palette, all the different elements you have used, and they are put together with such an artistic flair. Is there anything you can't do???

Boston Bee said...

I love the theme you have created with your art. I'm thinking going to the theatre? Am I right? What a great display for a t.v. room, cottage home theatre perhaps? ;)bb

Connie said...

OOoooooohmygoodness, I think I just found you, sugar! I've seen the name but don't think I've ever ventured over here. I, too, left the corporate world and am an empty nester along with my Love Bunny (hubs) as he is affectionately known.

Anyway, that little fan of paper with the pink ribbon just sort of touched my heart. I shall be in the studio right after posting to make some for the froufrou house I live in, chick!

Nice to meet you,
xoxo,
Connie
