New Collages

I finished several collages today:




Inspiration Avenue:

The theme this week was "It's About Time"

I found the quote and then the pieces fell together. The background is gelli papers. The butterfly is a photo I took at the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory and the other photo is me at about age 12 ( a time of great change).

I love how you have used a picture of yourself, and these are both pure summer! Just delightful! although I don't know about that shark, he looks pretty scary. Thanks for joining us at Opus Gluei, I love your take on summer and the beach!
