Creating sdrawkcaB

In case you are confused my title, it says, “Creating Backwards.”  It was my creative prompt on Friday by Carla Sonheim for the year long class I’m taking online.

It challenged me to create this collage in a different order:

Normally, I would create a collaged background with various papers and then paste an old photo over it.  But this time, I collaged a background of old book pages, then the photo and lastly my hand painted gelli-printed deli papers on top.

I like how the patterns and transparentcy of the deli paper add a little mystery to the piece.

I finished by stenciling the number of the day, 41 and a section of the alphabet backwards.

How would you create something in a different order?  You might surprise yourself like I did.  I encourage you to give it a try!

Cheers! 🙂

  2. I love it as I do all that you do because you are always exploring and noticing the world around you and the good things in it. You are a Pollyanna and I love that about you.
