sometimes i like to look back at collages i did over 2 years ago when i first stumbled onto mixed media creation. this one, titled "fly free, sing" is one of my all-time favorites. i love the random, chaotic background layers and then the stronger bold elements in the front. back then, every project was an exploration of self-discovery. there were no classes, no rules, no teachers. mostly there was just a longing to get all this pent-up creativity out. now that i think about it, i guess things haven't really changed that much. i still approach my mixed media art with a carefree experimentation approach. some things work, others don't. either way, i enjoy the process. and it's very freeing when i can look at a piece and be comfortable with it, content that it is pleasing to my eye. if someone else likes it, then it's icing on the cake.
thanks for all your support in adding wonderfully sweet layers of icing to my cake. my cup runneth over with the joy that you all bring!
