Collage Lab and IF all in one!

I am so excited to finally be able to announce the beginning of my new blog called Collage Lab! Collage Lab is my attempt at the one-a-day scene, and a chance for me to break out of my self-imposed box! My goal is to explore all kinds of materials and styles and give my brain a little free time away from the portraits. I learned a great deal from this holiday season, and from having signed up for so many shows back to back! I love love love my portrait work, but I worry that if I keep going as damn fast as I am with them, that I will burn myself right out, and I just dont want that to happen. So, voila, preemptive strike, and the birth of Collage Lab.

I was going to try to begin January 1, but that seemed to be too much pressure ;), so now I choose today!

So, as inspired by this weeks Illustration Friday theme stitch, and my new found obsession with flowers (more on that later), I share with you this piece! I hope you like it!

Feels very Scandinavian to me, so soft, very accessible. Love the hints of texture in it, also.

Did you do this by hand or machine? I really like the technique, very nice. I wonder if I could try my hand at something like this - but for me - once a week. That would be fun - collage Friday. :)

I'm happy that you're exploring alternatives and looking outside of the box because it's important to do this for your own sanity and also from a business perspective it can show your range. Will you eventually sell these collages as well??
