Hold onto your hats . . .

Something a little different from me.

Fairy in Gray . . .


copyright by Marsha Jorgensen 1.27.09
3 3/4 4 3/4 collage using a vintage image and wings used with a license agreement from Butterfly Utopia, all reprinted, carefully trimmed, and hand-colored using various shades of gray ink, and arranged with paper scraps and ribbon.


Okay, so she still has a hat and wings but NO COLOR. Don't know what came over me this morning but I was challenging myself to try and not use color - just exploring how things would look without it. I'm okay with it. May do some more today. But, then I'll be back in color later.

Still waiting for news.

sometimes stepping out of your comfort zone is a good thing! I like it!

Very pretty, antiquey flavor, I love it! Course I love the bold vibrant hues you often use as well but nothing wrong with trying different things. I love how the words "rebellious disturbance" are on her hat, they jump out more so than the other words and makes me think there's more to this young fairy than meets the eye. :)
