Once I Was A Bird


Once I Was A Bird
Originally uploaded by ms_mod
Large 19 x 24 inch original mixed media collage created upon 100 lb. Strathmore Bristol Paper. Created in shades of warm sepia, creamy vanilla, antique lace, and snowy white, with hints of cool blue and pale pink, this collage has a very soft, surreal, dream-like quality to it. It features the rather curious connection between humans and birds and the avian fascination many of us posess. Truly a mixed media piece, this collage was created with a melange of techniques and materials, including image transfers, found paper, vintage seam binding, a variety of antique papers, and a vintage photograph. All of these delicate snips and scraps work together to create a beautifully muted palette with loads of texture and dimension.

wow, artfest looks amazing! Your work is amazing too! And about being a bad little blogger.... I know that feeling. I've decided to have "Blogday Thursday" so I am forced to do it regularly, otherwise I'm chained to my jewellery bench!
