Friday Collage


Here's another snow scene. I tried to capture the look of the countryside north of my house last week during a near whiteout. I used a piece of yellow net over the sky to reproduce the eerie glow you get when the sun is actually shining through the snowstorm. I put Angelina fiber over the whole piece to represent the snow, and that makes it very hard to photograph. This week's lesson: think about the finishing. I used the pillowcase method for this because I was hurrying, and forgot that you can't press after you put on the Angelina. Hence the very wonky edges.

And here's the aftermath--ugh.

The Angelina is effective for capturing the whiteout. The "aftermath" is a very familiar scene !!!

Love the sparkle the angelina provides; perfect whiteout conditions!

Never mind the edges...this is a great concept here and you should do another take on it.
Like Kim, I loved the aftermath scene. Indeed, we all share it!

The effect of the net and the angelina fiber is perfect.

I just got my sewing/cutting area all cleaned and straightened out a couple of weeks ago and it is already such a shambles.

The inclusion of net seems especially inspired. Do you ever wonder why small pieces of art make such a BIG mess???

Oh, that looks like the mountain in Close Encounters of the Third Kind!

All joshin' aside, the Angelina fibers ROCK! Nicely done!

Forgot to mention~~ love the picture of the "aftermath." We should all share more photo like these!

You call that a mess? I like what you've done with the sky. I always think it looks very spooky when a big snow is coming-sort of other-worldly. Very nice
