Fish & Collage

I’ve been having a lot of fun with collage lately. Above are a few I did in Tami’s book for our sketchbook exchange.

About 5 months ago I glued hydrangea petals and leaves into the shape of a fish on a page in  the sketchbook of Aurora, another participant in the exchange. Before I sent it off I scanned the page so that I could post it to flickr and also so that I’d have a record of the way it looked when it left me. I imagine the leaves and/or petals will eventually turn brown. Recently I printed it onto canvas and made a puppet out of it to send off to  friend who is making a wonderous animation. This fish travels to the west coast more than I do lately!

And while we are on the subject of collage, check out the wonderful work of KC Trommer. Oh, and her poetry…sigh.

  1. Hi Peggy–thanks for the nice comment on my blogging about the Ghana tripp–it was a life changing experience. So, you had my sketchbook already! I am looking forward to it arriving home sometime and seeing what everyone created in its pages…
