WHOO HOO - It is Sunday night and I am posting my entry for the Illustration Friday challenge! Wanted to try my hand at collage. Lots of items layered on top of each other is a real challenge for me - intimidates me big time but I've been a voyeur of
Donna Downey's Collage Monday posts for a year now and decided that now was as good a time as any to try my own "hand" at it!! HAR HAR - did ya get the joke? Try my HAND at it??
The basic collage workhorses are represented - book text/illustrations, quirky quote, patterned paper, washi tape, etc. Do you see the unusual element(s) - candy wrappers! I didn't even eat the candy (I did eat cookies, though) while working on this layout - for some reason the wrappers were on the counter one day and I stashed them away in my scrap bin. LOVE the touch of metallic sheen it adds to this masculine look.
I leave you now with my new motto -
Always CARRY a flagon of whiskey in case of snakebite and furthermore always CARRY a small snake. . .
