Wordless Wednesday: Collage

Instead of a photograph this week, I'm posting a collage I made inspired by the Ode to Nature class.  Focal image is a photograph I took of an apple blossom bud in my backyard. Started with a spray ink background, added text, map and music paper and then focal image. Outlined with gesso, then added a variety of other images from my stash, skeleton leaf and magic mesh. Finished up with green paint around edges. Although I do a lot of collage, this was in a different style for me.

I like how the photo blends with the rest of the page - this ones seems to make a seamless transition and the effect is almost ethereal ... probably due to the very shallow DoF.

great collage, rinda. the sheet music in the background a perfect "accompaniment" to the photo and the other nature inspired elements, like a symphony.

Very neat looking. It looks digital. Don't take that the wrong way. From my world view it's a compliment. :)

Oooo. I love this collage. I feel so out of touch trying to get use to a new job and getting back to work full time. Actually more since I now work out of my home. I have to figure out how to leave work after a decent time. Thank you for your recent comments. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
