Sunday Weekly Wrap-Up

It's a Mess, sort-of!
Lisa Wright's book group on "Mess" has been a fun exploration.
This weeks mess has been focused on cut and paste for the most part. I steered away from wet messes - just wasn't up to that this week!
Collage has always been my favourite and I enjoyed the few I did in the book.

Blue collage:

 Fold the page and make random cuts
 Decorate the tree - I made a jewellery tree

 Cut apart the photo and create a new look




Daily Collages
I am almost finished the month of daily collages. I have sometimes had to create 2 in a day to catch up, but I have enjoyed the process. I have used different materials and focused on composition.
In May I want to try a sketch a day, using a picture or photo as my model.
Here are a couple of collages:

From scraps pf painted papers:
 From scraps of photos|:

Photography:
We now have a morning dove nesting on our ladder on the porch. The past few years a robin has made a nest there. The doves make a very minimalist nest but they sure do make a mess on the ground! It will be interesting to see the eggs and babies develop.

First...love your garden shadows below this post...secondly, those image of the doves are super. And I think my favorite of your collages is the jewelry tree.
