Pretend it's Monday and not Tuesday A.M.




Monday got away from me and here it is Tuesday morning. My only excuse was I spent a few hours visiting my terrific grandchildren - 3 1/2 years and 3 1/2 days - and totally lost track of what day it was!
Two of these beeswax collages have real dried flowers incorporated into them. It makes for kind of a neat little touch. The third one has tiny seashells.
The prompt for this week (remember we're *pretending* it's Monday!), is as follows...
Think of something that you've had occur in your life once and only once. Now make art or write about that or from that feeling or however you want to use the memory. It could, of course, be a happy occurrence or a not so happy one.
"I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it." Picasso

Every time I visit your blog I swear I am going to heat up my beeswax pot. I love love love your pieces and I found working with beeswax so satisfying. And there's no better excuse for forgetting what day it is than grandchildren -- especially a brandy new one!!

The collages are great! I love the addition of "extras" like shells and flowers. I forget what day it is sometimes too. : )

Laura,
Your collages get more interesting all the time! I really like studying them full-sized and trying to figure how many layers you've used, etc. Today's are so intriguing. The middle one has that nice touch of the orangey wispy paper on the bottom right - sort of sea-weedy. And was it intentional that the top of it is rather bird-shaped too? I like to just look and look!
