AED Finale

Today is the final day of Art Every Day Month. I can't believe how fast the time has gone by. This has been a very interesting experience. I learned a lot about using paper, pastels, and glazes. Learning to make the disparate elements blend or contrast was difficult, sometimes it worked, sometimes not. I still have to work on getting the compositions balanced. I tend to get excited about the project, and make marks or glue things down before thinking it through all the way!

Today's collage features the Curly One, as a Goddess of Harvest.

One of my goals for this month was to get over my reluctance to cover up layers. I think it worked. There will be more paper collages in my future, but right now I'm starting to think about how to translate some of this into fabric. I haven't worked with shear fabrics much, so that will be the next thing to explore. Anyone have any tips on that for me?
Have a great weekend, everyone. See you on Monday!

I love that you put the curly one in this it makes it more personal,as for working with shear fabrics I'm a bit stumped.I do use fabric on some of my cards with lace but that tends to be layer and pixed to decoparge of pictures cut out,xx Rachel and Speedy

I know that reluctance well of not wanting to cover up layers. There's always that thought of whether I'll make it worse instead of better. In sheer fabrics I use tulle a lot, maybe because it doesn't cover much up, mostly takes the edge off a layer if it is too bold. (plus it holds 'stuff' in place)
