Here's my entry for the Simple Still Life project. I still can't get the button to show up on my sidebar. Anyway, I decided to do a paper collage, because it's fast and because I'm still very new to paper collage and need practice. I painted and stamped the background, focusing just on the colors I could pull out of the original photo. I did a transparency transfer of some of the original images, but it was horrible, so I scratched it up to make it look more textured and collaged paper images over the top. It looked a bit unfinished, so I stamped a leafy border. I should have stopped at the background! Really, I was super happy with the background, but of course, it didn't have a focal point, so I went overboard trying to create a focal point and covered up too much of my lovely background. Oh well, it was a fun challenge and I definitely learned something from it, yes? Can't wait to see what the next challenge is!
