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! Posted by Picasa

Way to go Nikki....love the combination of abstract and realistic. We all did some amazing things in such different media. Doesn't it give you some great ideas for quilts?
