I thought I'd share my progress with one of the pieces I showed you in this post. It's called "Story of My Life", which I took from the title of the lovely vintage book cover I'm using as a substrate. It's hard to resist a ready-made idea like that, right? The book is actually about the life of William Taylor, an evangelist missionary who was Bishop of Africa during the 1800's.
These are 2 of the many configurations I've tried as I continuously rearrange, ad, and subtract various elements, in search of the best composition I can come up with. I should have taken more photos, and intended to, but I get carried away when I'm working and forget, or just can't stop long enough. They help me to remember where I placed everything, which can be really helpful. Oh well. I hope to be able to post the finished version of it soon.
Also, I should announce that I have a piece in the National Collage Society's Annual Postcard Collage Exhibition.
The exhibit will be on display at Kent State University until July 20; subsequently, you can view it online at the National Collage Society website.
Happy Solstice, everyone! Have a wonderful summer!
