Dream Big

Dream Big

8" x 10" mixed media collage

I've always admired Kelly Rea Roberts and if you go back to Issue # 15 of Cloth Paper Scissors, (Nov/Dec 2007), on page 72 she has an article about how she makes her collages. So I made this with a nod to Kelly- very much in her style. I am pleased at how it came out. I learned a great technique from the article...one she learned from someone else...and that's how we all learn. Now I want to take her article and make more of this kind of art, but with my own spin on it.

That's the beauty of being inspired by how others work...putting your own spin on it! I love this piece!!

Beautiful piece! I think by sharing techniques and then putting our own selves into it is what makes new, original, one of a kind art! You did a great job!

I agree with Rasz--we take snippets from techniques that we learn, and create our own unique technique and style. I'm so glad that there is a Kelly Rea.
(great quote too)

I love her work, too! And you did such a great job with this collage and totally made it your own!
