Hi TerrieIf you tinkered with the second and maybe replaced the red flowers with words I believe it would really pop.Stay inspired!
Oh I like these pieces. Yes lots going on but there is a certain energy vibe you have created. Great stuff. xox
sometimes I think I learn more from the pieces I don't like than from the ones I do. often people love the pieces I hate, so it's not some black and white "this is ugly" kind of thing. it really makes me stop and evaluate what I don't like about it, which pushes me to consider what I could do to change it, or what I could do next time, and so I grow. index cards are such a great place for these kinds of experiments!
I don't like willy-nilly collages, and these are NOT. I see grids in each one, with an accent image. I can sort of see why you think they're too busy. Could it be the colors? Or the different sized flowers? I personally like the collages, because beauty is always in the eye of the beholder.
Thanks so much for taking the time to add a comment. I value what you think!
