We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
"Little Gidding"

Magazine girls!

Continuing with collage, I've done a couple of cards, they are both very similar, but this was an experiment, and I wanted a back-up!

Started with strips cut from magazines, some incorporating headline words, and stuck them to a couple of 5" x 5" pieces of card.

Covered both with a thin coat of gesso to take the edge off the colours.

In my box of pastes, I found a pot of Ferro paste, which is a rusty brown colour with a bit of subtle sparkle, and I used this through a stencil.

I then added some colour with Brusho paints, and mounted onto card blanks.

Here is a poem from my book of Haiku -

Walking in the night -
Snow is falling,
A farewell to the year.
