When I got back to Delaware, I missed our loud, colorful tropical birds (not to mention that tropical sunshine!) Digging through my collected papers, I found lots of good gelli prints to use; the leafy ones looked especially jungle-y. Then I hit the collage jackpot! A friend had given me her old artwork-a-day calendar from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Every page pictures something wonderful and the paper was just the right weight for collage!
So now you are in on the secret. Most of the time I was humming away in my studio and forgot to take photos. Here are a few that made it into the camera. The rest will be an art history mystery!!
