A Walk in the Woods ~ feathers & bones


This collage features my distressed leather paper.

This collage was inspired by fellow artist and blogger Cecile Gravens' configuration box . I used bits and pieces of various papers to add suggestions of feathers and little bones, pebbles...things one might find and pick up while strolling through the woods. This reminded me of a cigar box I had at one time that I kept my forest 'treasures' in for safe keeping. Funny what will catch an artist's eye. One of my artist FB friends asked the question, "what weird little things do others collect?" She admitted she had an interesting collection of her own. When I took inventory I had a dead bumble bee, a knot of cat hair and an entire bag(or two) of feathers. Ha!
