Fan of…..#32 – Big Sand Bay

….thanks to Jez Braithwaite for hosting Fan of…..

I’m a big fan of the beach down from my cottage on Georgian Bay. Last weekend the beach was quiet. It was a beautiful weekend but most people stayed in the city. I’m not complaining because I loved the solitude and spending time with my dog, Frances.P1080194

Collaged Vessels – A New Art Project

…thanks to Anne Marie Grgich for her inspirational collage project

Part three of Carla Sonheim’s Year of the Collage features artist Anne Marie Grgich. Our first assignment involved obtaining three vases, piles of coloured thin paper and a glue stick. The paper was to be sorted by colour and cut into large and small pieces.

When everything was assembled we were to attach similar pieces around the vase using a numbering system. The pieces were attached and burnished with a glue stick and your hands.

I did most of this assignment up at the cottage. It was very mediative. The first layer is complete on two of the three vases and now I have to wait for the next lesson to find out what the next step is.

Here are the three vases that I picked up at Value Village.P1080237

And here are the vases after the first layer of collage.IMG-3609
