Slam Dunk In Turkey
Rejected cuttings from this morning's work glued onto a recently-rediscovered postcard that I never got to send a couple summers ago. Misplaced during an emergency retreat from a family vacation in central Turkey; details include a sunset horse ride in Cappadocia, a daughter, a broken back...you don't want to know...but, all better now!
Sure I have a lot of images that are already cut out (and put in boxes to be used at a later date) but I don't consider them left overs -- like scraps. (And I always clean my work table when finished with an image so I tend to throw the paper scraps into a recycle bin.)
I wanted to truly use scraps.
Luckily I found a bit of striped paper that had been ripped into an oval (don't remember doing that on purpose!) and a fashion illustration that had a corner chewed off of it and although the flowers were carefully snipped, I considered them scrap so here is my "Left Over Combo" (that I pasted onto a portion of solid color cardboard stock that was left over from making another collage.)
