Photos of my collage experiences 1 and 2: These are my endeavors at collage making on Sunday. The top one started with a photo of an Afghanistan woman and her young daughter (I think) sewing on a sewing machine, ( no stretch of the imagination as to why I gravitated to this picture!) I surrounded it with fabrics and papers and did some hand stitching as well. They are all layered on a real sewing pattern. The letters in the lower left corner are Hebrew letters not a full word. The feeling I had while making it was of connecting across the world, reaching woman to woman; artist to artist; and the Hebrew letters for me connecting with the Dari speaking women making a branch of peace between us!
My second collage was done hastily at the days end with me grabbing again
some Hebrew writing
that I really did not understand at the time, but came home and studied it more with my Hebrew-English dictionary to realize it says something like:
"Rejoice Groom and Bride in the children..."
Like I said, something like that.
Hannah's circles; wonderful papers, fabrics, and silver
cut up and glued down for this happy
(click to enlarge) Yesterday I spent the fastest three hours of my life at Hannah Klaus Hunter's Collage Salon. What an experience. First, since I am pretty sure Hannah will be checking in here let me say a huge
Hannah was extremely generous with her art supplies and her art studio where eight of us met. Her studio is to die for. I hope you can see much of it in the collage I made from the
photos I took there.
Believe me the array of papers, pictures, paints, glues, stamps, embellishments etc etc etc too numerous to tell all or use was overwhelmingly wonderful.
I felt like a little kid in an art candy shop!
A huge table full of things to use with plenty of room for eight women artists
to spread out and create
and more things than you could put on a million art pieces around the room to choose from...
You can see why I am being redundant here
because there WAS THAT MUCH!
So add eight lovely ladies, chit chat about all sorts of things,
scissors snipping, paper tearing, glue and paint splashing,
and you have the fun 3 hrs
that ended without my realizing that much time had gone by.
Hannah said she will do this at least four times a year.
I am already looking forward to the next time.
