I've been working on this collage off and on for several days. And for several days before that, it sat on my easel, waiting. I had this 11-1.4 x 15-1/4 art board that I stripped and gessoed and left until the "urge" came on. All I knew was that everything would revolve around the cabinet card. Little by little, I assembled the bits and pieces (of which I have far too much -- imagine sifting through them all to find just the right pieces!) and put them in place. I am not a heavy layer, about three or four layers is enough; I like everything to peek through. By the way, thank you so much for all the wonderful comments on my interview with Layers Upon Layers.
Once that was done, I tackled something I've been wanting to do for a long time -- a fabric journal, that is fabric covers and watercolor paper innards. I finished the cover a little while ago, basically free-hand, winging it, and using logic as to how to put it together (no, I am not a Vulcan! I am the product of a French education, which is pretty much based on logic -- it's not for nothing that a much-used French expression is: C'est pas logique! )
The question now is: How do I attach the paper pages to this fabric cover? I'll think about it tomorrow, courtesy of Scarlett O'Hara.
