There's a Bug in My Garden...

My amaryllis are beginning to bloom.  I discovered this bug on one of the plants.  Of course, I had to take its photo!

Life Book 2014 Week 12 led by Finnabair.  We are to create a 3 dimensional collage incorporating photographs and assorted bits and pieces.

I printed a photo of my mother.  She was quite young in this photo.  I don't think she was married to my dad yet.

There was so much glue on the paper to hold all these dimensional objects down, I didn't think it would ever dry!  Spray inks and gesso added over top.

Trust a Tree

Life Book 2014 Week 11 led by Tamara Laporte.  We are to draw to draw a Tree of Life.  I am thinking Mother Nature.

I found this wonderful poem Trust a Tree by Gajanan Mishra and used some of the lines from it in my drawing.

It's all about layering (just like photoshop!!!!)
