I then added the acrylic background but did not like it.
I pondered for a few days on what to do with the lackluster page in my journal. Aha….. I decided to collage it. First the shoe…..
Then the background….. I just had to get rid of the hideous green background!
The most time-consuming part of collage is picking the papers. And then there's all the little scraps of paper lying around on the workspace and on the floor….glad nobody came to visit while I was doing this project. My final reward was getting rid of the glue on my fingers and fingernails.
I debated whether to add just a bit more red to the background but
after careful consideration decided to stop where I was. As my artist friend Jacki says, it's important to know when to stop.
