art journal: exploring collage

this is a little 6x6 collage that i've been working on for a few weeks.  i actually finished the bulk of it in one sitting, but then it took me a while to find the time and inclination to finish embroidering the rainbow.  i was surprised that it came together so quickly as when i sat down to start it i had the proverbial deer in the headlights syndrome.  i had no idea what i was doing and thus had no idea how to get started.  scary.

i decided to cruise through my pinboards and found an art journal page with stitching on it that sparked my interest.  then i remembered a couple little kits that i bought from julie kirk a few months ago that i'd only fondled thus far. these two things gave me just enough direction to relax and let the creative juices start flowing.  this was fun.  i think it's a charming little piece and hope to try collage again soon.  show no fear.  :)
