summer of color: green

Kristin at Twinkle Twinkle is sponsoring week 2 of the Summer in Color prompts and this week is all about green. I worked on my WIP collage.

It's a 9x12 canvas with acrylic paints/drips, all sorts of specialty papers (I love that white leaf patterned paper - it's sheer in the leaves!), magazine and book photos/text, a stamp, stenciling, and then for dimension I added a stick wrapped with jewelry wire and leaf from the park (had a heck of a time gluing that sucker down!).

The message is "Nature does not hurry yet everything is accomplished. - LaoTzu"

There are so many inspiring, fun and interesting people participating - it's worth your time to browse through everyone's blogs. Start at Kristin's site.... Twinkle Twinkle.
