Collage 543

When doing our blurbs for the blog, most of the team is seeing their collage several months after it's been made. Sometimes I just don't recognize a piece, and often want to critique it instead of embrace it, like this one. It seems like two pieces instead of one: the top has all these happy elements, and the bottom is dark, and is not connected in any way. I went through a period when I couldn't pull myself or the work forward, and had difficulty relating the collage to the book, and I believe this is representative of that period. - Adrienne
