Collaborative traditional cut and paste (scissors and glue ) collage blog with a weekly set theme.
Something I've been meaning to say for a while: y'all's collages seem, almost without exception, to tell a story. I think tht's very cool, but I don't think of mine that way. I aim for them to express a mood. If this collage seems strange, it's because my life is pretty crappy lately, and my mood is strange, because I'm trying very hard to be hopeful in the midst of it all.
Your collage does tell a story to me...I was picking up on it BEFORE I read your comment. Bird "doing a number" on the foot = pain. Tightly bagged trash = out with the old. Sunlight through the trees = hope.Happy Birthday Fiona! Hope things get better for you in the coming year.
I hope things look up for you soon and that you have a wonderful birthday! I find your collage very interesting and like the mix of imagery.
Happy Birthday Fi! It's great to have a creative outlet for our moods. I find it very therapeutic. I love the mix of shapes and colours you have used here. The composition is extremely well-balanced. All the best.
In just under the wire here to wish you a beauteous Birthday, Fi. Very striking collage (colors, mix of strange images) and it makes me wish we could sit down over a glass of wine (or 3) and hear the stories behind this one! Hope the next year brings you good things.
Belated Birthday greetings Fi! Sorry I am a bit behind with my comments as usual. Lovely work !
