048: stapled collage
it's got about 12 layers, mostly vintage, and yes, they are all attached with that one staple! this took an embarrassingly long time to make, most of which was spent figuring out how to position everything so it was spread out enough to be seen, but compact enough to stay on there.
047: aloha, hibiscus
yes, it's yet another hawaii collage, this one inspired by the gorgeous hibiscus stamp that gina carved for me, which i ♥LOVE♥! she carved the smaller flower, too, and the base is a photo i took on waikiki beach.
049: namaste collage
aesthetically, this might be my least favorite ICAD of the year, a fact of which i am actually rather proud! see, there was a point at which this looked really beautiful, but it was totally safe and a little dull; so i made myself keep going and "wreck" it. because the most important part of art journaling (for me!) is to emphatically place more emphasis on PROCESS than OUTCOME.
surprise! it's another stapled collage! i should probably apologize in advance because i am pretty sure i'll be making waaaay too many of these over the next few weeks.
051: sewn stack of layers
NOT another stacked and stapled collage. no siree bob. this one is SEWN. totally different. totally. :)
