Weekly Collage


My, oh my. I do believe some sort of scrap demon inspired this. But it's done and I'm moving on.

I started off the morning by getting the crumbs in their container with random strip (under 2 inches wide and most of them less than 12 inches long)in the back of the drawer. I was going to work with the crumbs to create a weekly but as I was getting ready to toss the trimmings from my week long scrap management I decided to use some to make the 'creature' above.
I sorted out some like colors and fused them together into a few color blocks, fashioned a "face", and threw down some more trimmings for hair. The eyes are creepy and tend to stay fixed on me as I walk around the studio.

Living consciously...

Instead of wishing for things, Hendricks recommends this affirmations as practice for the day: My greatest wish is to live in a state of harmony and grace and to gracefully and lovingly accept that which I cannot change.

Okay. Harmony, grace, gracefully, lovingly... not words I would choose to use.

You must be the change you wish to see in the world. ~ Mahatma Ghandi
