So today was the deadline for turning in entries in the Ludington Area Center for the Arts BINGO card. I had one more piece to do, a self portrait. I decided to do a collage.
I've been working on it for over a week, because the layers of paper have to be glued down and allowed to dry. Here's the process.
I actually did some of it in the wrong order, but o well... this is pretty much all experimental for me anyway. This was the first set of pieces I cut and glued.
Next step. It's kind of fun because all these papers came either from a catalog of outdoor gear or plant catalogues.
I did have to go hunting for some magazines with black, and the various blues of the backpack. We had recycled all the paper not long ago, and since I wasn't keeping a collage stash (can you believe there is some item in the universe I didn't have a stash of?) I had to rummage. But as you can see, I found things.
The last thing I added was my hair which is newspaper bits. Here is the final one again, so you can see the correct order easier.
In other news: I did laundry and hung the clothes outside for the first time this year. Wonderful! And I did my one risky behavior of this time period- I went to the grocery store. I'm feeling a bit ho-hum today. I'm sure it will pass. I could fix that by doing some of the things I really should get done. I'm sure I'm much more content than most everyone who is affected by the shut-downs, so I certainly am not going to start complaining.
