I recently picked up the March/April edition of the Somerset Studio magazine and saw some wonderful photos of some little mini collages I absolutely adored. They were made by Lori Franklin of Sparkly Heart Studio. When I first started getting into mixed media, I worked on the little 4 x 4 inch canvases. They are just so cute and fun. Over time, my family and friends told me I needed to work bigger so, at some point, I put away all my little canvases and started working bigger. Those wonderful little collages in the magazine had me yearning to work on something small again. I then remembered that I still had a few 4 x 4 inch canvases in my stash that were already collaged and ready to finish.
I decided to use this one since the colors were similar to the ones in the magazine.
Here it is with a bit more collage added and some paint.
All finished! I love it! Especially because Joy is my word for the year. Those little collages just make me happy.
