Foliage ~ IA's Team Challenge

Jenn from Just Add Water Silly, is this weeks hostess For the Inspiration Avenue's Weekly Team Challenge, and her theme for this week is "foliage".

Originally i intended to do a watercolor with lots of ferns and fiddle-heads that i am so fond of; however yesterday i changed my mind & decided to try this as a collage. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment in the process of creating this piece, and with each collage i make, i love the medium more and more.

  3. This is so beautiful, Diane. We've been seeing so many springy pastel colors lately. I love the autumn look this has. The composition is wonderful! I love the way the curved lines take your eye right up the page.

  7. Diane, I love collage work. You just get lost in it. Your submission is wonderful. Don't you just love not knowing how you will start it or how it will end up and then you end up with a piece that you love, like this one?

  9. This is very pretty-- this collage has beautiful and organic movement to it, which mirrors the fact it is of leaves (which are organic and have a movement in and of themselves) very nicely. Thanks for posting this, and for your very cool "Words" challenge this week!
