|Happy Apples - Card Collage|
I thought making a 'quick' collage would do the job, and in my file of coloured card I was happy to find just the colours I needed. It was going to be easy-peasy, especially as I decided to use my narrow double-sided tape to stick the thing together.
Everything possible went wrong. I know it was my present state of mind that caused the problems, but everything that could went wrong. I kept measuring incorrectly, the ruler kept slipping as I cut the yellow strips, the double sided tape was just that bit too wide for the strips. Then when it came to sticking things on, the tape stuck firmly to the card, and when I tried to remove the protective strips it brought away the surface of the card!
My inspiration for the apples came from the rich colour of the green card, and when they were at last stuck on they just asked for faces to be drawn on them.
Fortunately the themes for two other challenges fitted in perfectly with the Happy Apples collage, so I am also linking Collage Obsession and Take a Word.
For Collage Obsession the challenge is to "tell us something about YOU". You may already have guessed, if you have seen some of my previous posts, that I enjoy making light-hearted, silly images, and will carry on doing so until I grow up, if I ever do!
And at Take a Word Electra has chosen the theme of "True Happiness". Just making art of any kind makes me happy:-
"Joy fills my heart
When I make art"
