New Collage Piece: Solace



Finally I got a break! Yahoooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!


I started this last night (the background and the transfer) and just completed it today.
Just needs a coat of varnish!

I named it "Solace" as these trees look so very calm to me-I guess its something I long for right know (solace) as my life is so full of stress and craziness right now.


The colors on this piece are also very calming and peaceful. Its just the mood I am in right now.

You cant see it in the photo, but I also stamped some text onto it randomly in white, to add a final touch. It really looks much better in person. The color is SO much better in person too.
Lots of texture too. I love making collages that make you want to reach out and touch them.
I didn't want to overload this with elements-I didn't want to take away from the beautiful background.
