|This week's Summer of Color is Yellow! I was excited to try a collage, something I've never done before. I used bottle caps for the flower's centers, music sheets for her wings, and printed paper for the dress. I'm not really happy with the way it turned out; I didn't spend nearly as much time on it as I should have. But, because the week is already getting so late, I felt like I just needed to get it posted! I may go back and redo parts of it and add more to it.|
I had planned to use bottle caps already and then saw that we were supposed to add something metallic, as a bonus. So it worked out really well.

This piece actually has meaning to it. It's reminiscent of my daughter Zara, when she was young. Very free spirited, always wanting to fly, she was and is a musician and she learned to play piano on our very old piano, the music on her wings is from Lord of The Rings (Many Meetings) which she used to play, she loves sunflowers and has a very sunny disposition and she is standing in a field of dandelions (which she calls wish weeds), surrounded by happy fireflies. She is the epitome of yellow and sunshine and spreading warmth and love everywhere she goes.Thanks for stopping by, and have a groovy, colorful week!
