365 Day Art Challenge: week 48 and a few spring flowers


Here are my collages for Week 48.  This 365 something project was created in part and hosted by Hanna at i Hanna.  

In case you missed them, here are Week 47's collages.  As I'm sure you know by now, I post every Monday morning for the previous week.  All my collages are 4" X 4" (10,16 cm X 10,16 cm).


Nest


In the heartland


 Copper roots


My name is Butch, not Queenie


Psychedelic dreams


New York minute
If you are playing in Hanna's 365 Something project, please let me know and I will be by to see what you are making.  Please let me know if you like any of these.  As always, I am extremely grateful for your continued support of this project and my art.

But wait, please.  Since Bleubeard and I are hosting Art Journal Journey this month, we have a seasonal entry for you.


I call this Flowers in Spring.

I fussy cut several flowers, the largest is this one above.

Smaller flowers were easier to cut, but harder to apply.

Of course, a Martha Stewart flower, purchased several years ago with a great cents off coupon, was added to the mix.

These spring flowers signify today my favorite season is springtime.

For this page, I began by painting 8.5 X 11 inch card stock using green paint and gold glaze.  To it, I added a piece of old wallpaper.   I then cut extra flowers from the leftover wallpaper. 

Bleubeard and I are so happy you chose to join us today and hope to also see you at Art Journal Journey where our themes are Favorite Season or 'Tis the Season.

Pretty spring flowers, which work this morning as we are having a one day warm up. And I once again adore your collages. This week I notice you have used some darker colors. It looks good. Happy new week. Hugs-Erika

I can't pick between "New York Minute" and "Flowers in Spring" but narrowed it down to those two lol Each of your collages is a different experience, and I enjoy my Monday moments spent looking at them :)

Fabulous collage squares. I absolutely love Butch not Queenie.
The spring flower page looks beautiful and the flowers so pretty. The fussy cutting must have taken ages, I know how long it takes me.
