This collage measures 8.5" x 8" and was made for a swap on one of my yahoo groups. The age-old process seems to always begin with, "where will my inspiration come from today?" Well, I'm happy to report that I soon felt that wonderful RUSH of ideas, followed by a feeling of relief. My guess is, you've been there before? LOVING what you do has everything to do with the ability to connect with your creative juices! So be patient with yourself. Inspiration is waiting for you, if you allow a quiet space for it to fill.
I was clearly inspired by this dark and lovely lady and everything else flowed from there. Next, I came across some amazingly beautiful vintage celestial images, maps and diagrams. A very specific color combination came to me at that point and I just KNEW that I would use a soft shade of lime coupled with deep ruby red!
I made this with acrylics, found paper, ink, foam stamped "swirls" and added a special high gloss finish! ...I hope you like it, Lisa!
