You may not call this art, since I just used other people's art and just arranged it to my liking. Well, you'd be right, it's actually called design. And whatever you call it, I like making them. I used some images from old books I like, a photocopier, colored paper, scissors, paint and glue. All of these items working together to create 2 collages that I like quite a bit. The best part though, was making them. I had a lot of fun.
This is the first one I made. The boys want a space room. They love this book "If You Go to the Moon". I used some favorite images from that book. The colors are very bright, as are most of the colors in our house. Color makes me happy. I really liked this collage a lot. Until I made Lilly's. Now I like hers better.
The idea for Lilly's collage came from 3 places: birds, pink and orange. When I was pregnant with James I found this darling bird material that I made into a "if it's a girl" blanket. Since then I have wanted to do a girl's room with birds. I also love pink, so that was a given in this scenario. Orange was kind of a surprise. I like orange more and more, and I have discovered, I like it a lot with pink. Lilly's bumper is white with tiny, bright orange tulips on it. It looks great with a hot pink sheet and her white crib. This collage is a combination of all of those things. And it is also about Paris, because every girl should have a bit of Paris in her room.
