Collage

I have been a fan of the art of KC Willis for years – ever since I first saw her wonderful collages in Somerset magazine. I always wanted to take a class with her and was delighted to discover that she was offering her “Collage Camp” on DVD. What fun! Just give me some fabric, paper, thread and glue and I’m happy as a little pig in poop…

Below is my first collage using what I learned from the DVD. The transferred image is of my sister as May Queen along with her court. She was in the eighth grade, I’m guessing circa 1956 or 1957. The pearl buttons aren't as bright as they appear in the picture. They are really subtle, in shades of brown. This is going to be a little extra Christmas present for Susie. Been singing “Stairway to Heaven” as I’ve been working on this…

“If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow
Don’t be alarmed now,
It’s just a spring clean for the May Queen.”
