New Challenges



This week at Collage Obsession the theme was "A page in a Travel Journal". I had been just looking through photos from our trip to British Columbia 5 years ago and got out a bag of mementos and flyers from our trip.
I chose Vancouver Island's Victoria - a beautiful place where we toured for several days before driving north through parts of the island. I would return in a flash if I could.( Loved all the places I saw in BC for that matter.)



______________________________________________________________________________




The Alpha Dictionary challenge this time was "T" and after finishing the above collage, I knew that totem pole would be my choice for T. I have always had a love of native art and culture. The totem pole is unique and so significant to the culture of the Northwest Coast Natives.




_______________________________________________________________________________



At Inspiration Avenue this week, we are asked to "Show and Tell"

There are several pieces that I hold dear to my hear for several reasons.

The first is the mixed media collage I completed on my mom and her heritage. I took a weeklong course and this was the final piece.



The first  and only oil paintings I have done were 2 of flowers. They hang in our bedroom. One is red, the other blue.

 
 
 
I took several courses at Haliburton School of Fine Arts over 10 years ago. It was the go to place with my children for many years.
I took a  watercolour course and this was my favourite:
 


The following year I took a watercolour/collage course and loved it. I was able to recycle some of my watercolours into this collage:

I actually came from IA, but fell in love with your collage obsession. This is wonderful. I am working on a 7 continent altered book, and this journal spread is incredible. You do fantastic work, including your paintings. Great composition and color.

Kim said...

Love all your projects this week, you've been very busy! HPPF!

Lou Anne Hazel said...

I love all of the pieces you shared this week. The travel journal page brings back memories for me. Your piece on your mother is the one I love most. Thank you for sharing it at Inspiration Avenue!

Craftymoose Crafts said...

All of your show and tell pieces are stunning--especially the collage of your mom. I have always loved Native American and Pacific Coast artwork,so I admire your journal page,too!

Wonderful pieces! I especially love the collage honoring your mom and the watercolors. Thanks so much for sharing!

SAMARA said...

ah! Haliburton - you live about 1 hour from me!!! Nice. That watercolor pic is sensational. That was a course well worth taking for sure. And the collage with the totem pole is gorgeous. It is like one of the "where's Waldo". The more I looked at it the more I saw. You are so multi talented Bev! HPPF. HeArtfully Yours, Samara
