Trammel Collages 01

Here are the first four of fifteen collages made from ephemera that I had stuffed in zip lock bags just waiting for but never selected previously for a collage.  Creating these quick collages was really fun. I say they were quick but they actually were done in three parts with time in between.  I first did the background and put them away.  I then sewed on them and put them away.  Finally I did all fifteen foregrounds in about an hour yesterday.   I could have done them in one setting though.

This is the second envelope I made out of the brown waxed paper.  So now I have to decide which envelope I will put the collages in before binding with twine.  You will know by Trammel Collages 04 in a few days.

Sam Smith - Stay With Me

Although he has been around for the past few years I am listening to him almost everyday and enjoying his music even more.

Somehow these are some of my favorite collages of yours. Simpler, busier wonderful.

Wonderful collages- I remember the Randel Plowman class that you and Brian and I took- we had to make those 5 minute ones- I loved that.
Sam Smith is a terrific singer. I discovered this duo a while back I find their voices and lyrics to be incredible. The call themselves Aquilo. I find tears coming when I listen to them- sometimes sad but mostly cause it's so beautiful.
