(my first tentative attempts at collage backgrounds... so far)
I am so mindful of making a mistake, I am too scared to try different things, to try different colours together, different textures and using new painting mediums. I do these things in my mind and decide that it wont work without even giving it a go. I think part of it is that the cost of things sometimes puts me off using papers, and products etc... in case they don't work and it becomes a waste (and I'm also just a big chicken). So I had a little go tonight (images above) and am happy with the results so far although I am a little scared, I am kind of looking forward to the following week, where I will be trying some new collage ideas for backgrounds... I am thinking of this as a completely experimental week (when I say week I mean the few hours in between kids and work).
I will be starting Kelly Rae's e course tomorrow, so I am really looking forward to seeing how it all goes and to 'working' with all the wonderful people who have also signed up.
