I've been distracted by...my life or something resemblilng that lately so haven't been playing with my paints much this past week. I was inspired to put together a couple of little collages, though, using an anniversary party invitiation that I received in the mail.
I even used the lining of the envelope (the little turquoise and yellow patterned bits), as well as pieces from another lime green envelope that I'd been
hoarding saving for just such a purpose.
I made 2 collages using the same colour themes and scrap sources, digging into my drawer of paint cards from the hardware store and tearing strips from pages of an old journal of mine I'd kept several years ago. I hate reading about my trials and tribulations from the past. I think mostly because I'm dismayed to find that I'm still dealing with many of the same "issues." I didn't realize until I posted this second collage here that "Allowed 4" seems to be its underlying message.
What pleasures have you allowed for in your life this week? I have enjoyed a surprise return of warm weather and indulged in some swing sitting with a cup of good strong tea and an engrossing book from the library. To say nothing of some spontaneous collaging--but it looks like I already said it.
