ABC Wednesday - New Round Starts and WOYWW
A new round starts this week - and the farewell one as well. This has been a most enjoyable challenge - I will be so sad to see its end.

I found this article online and found it very powerful - well worth the read.
A is for Sally Armstrong - an advocate for women and for human rights; a Canadian journalist
A is also for Anonymous

I've also started a new challenge for myself - using the projects in "The Collage Workbook" by Randel Plowman to ignite my collage practice.
The first project was to create 5 quick collages - each in 5 minutes. I gathered papers - the central image was from Christmas wrapping paper that I couldn't throw out and then IO just played with scraps I had. A fun, quick project.
Here's my work space while working:
