I proceeded to completely get off track and start working on all things St. Patty's-related and never looked back. That's kind of how my mind works. Scary, I know.
This morning I picked up right where I left off, once I finished sorting through everything I had just shoved into the project's box (because I was going to come right back to working on it... so I really didn't need to neatly put anything away. Umm hmm. That's how I rationalize my messy ways.)
Each section has a pocket with a collage facing it. Here's the first finished page-
It's fun to just slap some paint here and there without a plan. That has been the hardest thing about collage (for me)... the whole 'without a plan' part. I'm a planner. Once I actually get some images glued down and a little paint added to it I begin to feel a sense of freedom. I feel brave enough to keep adding things. Usually I shop through the metal tin that sits on my table- it's filled with little bits that I hoard, thinking they might work in collage and I just glue away...
Hmm. Way, way back. Just today, The Daughter took her last final for the school year and she is now officially a Senior. Where did the time go???
I will be back tomorrow to show you the next page. I swear. Honest.
