...at least not for too long. Please excuse the photo quality, as I am truly pleased with how this collage came out. I've combined magazine clippings from my collection with decorative paper scraps from previous projects. They've been decoupaged, burned, distressed and sealed in a combination of metallic gold acrylic and a matte sealant; I wanted some shimmer without taking away from the wear worn aesthetic of the piece.It has been aptly titled, Soul on Earth. I'm back... I guess. You all know how it goes... and comes and goes and comes back again.
In other exciting creative news, Charmaine has alerted me to the wonders of Haiku Kung Fu hosted by the lovely and talented Chelsea of 88Words. She can be found here and here. I've spent the last hour- yes, sixty (60) minutes, with my haiku written, debating, "Do I punctuate or not"? (Do you?!) I ultimately went with punctuation, and later felt like that person: the one who uses his chopsticks to cut sushi or worse, rubs the chopsticks together! Ewww! Either way, I have written and entered my very own (punctuated) haiku to Chelsea's awesome contest. Wish me luck and/or join the showdown here.
