Aaaaaah. A Sunday of Art-Making...








I played with a technique by Kelly Rae Roberts that was featured in two issues of Cloth Paper Scissors. The finished piece may be my submission for an affirmation collage swap hosted by friend and artist Marilyn Rock. I am in the process of making several more, so I am not sure which one I will swap. Marilyn cautioned that making these could become an addiction. I loved working on what affirmations I would use. It was definitely an exercise in self-awareness.

AWESOME! I've been wanting to do more of this kind of thing myself. Love the idea of affirmations captured in this way -- beautiful work!

Oh Kerri!! Your collage, here, is amazing! I love your background; great seeing them as "starts", too. Your hand-drawn figure is just so moving with your affirmations! I still have not actually adhered my affirmations on my collage; I keep changing my mind. Maybe my affirmation should be: "Make up My Mind" - LOL! Really; this is awesome!!!! You're incredible!
