Collage and Paint


Hello All!
It has been a truly lovely day here.
The sun is out warming everything it touches.

My friend Sharon from Livewire Jewelry has long been
inspiring me with her beautiful collages.
She made me a beautiful one for Christmas,
and I was so inspired I created this one on watercolor paper.
I am not sure if this pic is blurry, lol!
To be honest, my eyes are so blurry today! 

 I was taken with the daisy tissue paper she
wrapped my extra birthday present in, as well as the 
silk ribbon and robin egg blue tissue paper.
so I wondered what I could make of the wrappings,
and this is what came forth.

Thank you Sharon for the inspiration that you are!

I have been "under the weather" these past few days.
So I have not been painting as much as I would like.


But they are coming along!
I am on the fourth layers. 

Are you shocked at the boldness, the bigness???

I am!
lol!

Big and bold has never been my style!
Yet, I have never had so much fun!
I will be sure to share them when they are finished,
no matter what they look like.
OMGoodness, I am making a brave commitment!
I consider all of you my friends on a creative journey together : )


 I hope you too, are having a creative weekend,
How do you step out of your creative comfort zone?

 Hugs,
Terri

HelLo dearest Terri
Your collage inspired by Sharon's offerings is just gorgeous! I know how special those little bits and pieces are that come with gifts from friends as there are a multitude of uses for them in our creations! I'm sure she will be delighted I'm sure!
Love the background effect with your paints. There is absolutely no blurriness that I can see!!!

Speaking of which that huge painting is really coming along sweetie! Take your time and enjoy.

There really is time for everything under heaven as we travel our creative journey - some days up and some days not so up!

Loving thoughts and warm hugs,
Suzy

Hello Terri
What you create can be surprising even for you. It's allways a part of you, maybe you never saw before!
Don't worry about what the others think about, the most important is the pleasure you have to make it!

your collage is beautiful and sweet. I love the way you used left overs.
Isn't it fun to challenge oneself to step out of the box we put ourselves in?
