Earlier in the year I took an online class from Jane Davies, Text and Image.  If you have never been to Jane's blog Collage Journeys, you are in for a treat.  I have taken four classes from her and each has been amazing.  Stop by her blog if you get a chance.... http://janedavies-collagejourneys.blogspot.com/ .

In our class, Jane asked us to find magazine photos and disparate or interesting text.  We created backgrounds, added the photo and text, and then we were on our own to create a finished piece.  I love the dragonfly that I found.  Look closely for other insects or amphibians.  Jill K. Berry even had some influence on this piece since it has a portion of a map, the map moon.  Check out Jill's work in Personal Geographies, her book,  or on her blog http://jillberrydesign.com/blog/ .  Jill has a second blog, http://personal-geographies.com/. Some of my students work has been showcased there.

Great movement in this piece. And it is also great that you are so generous in sharing links to so many other artists on your blog.
