On earth, peace anywhere? That is the question my latest collage asks. I used a holiday card to create the background and arch and thought it would be fun to mix up the words "peace on earth," so I added the word "anywhere" and made it a question.

This small postcard size (4x6") collage has a dreamy quality as you gaze out the window toward the blue sea. I like to think of it as a door way to the soul.

Before and After

Change is good. As I mentioned in a previous post, I got rid of the plans I'd had for my spring collage series opting instead for a simpler design. Even though I had thought about the color scheme and subject matter for weeks, when I finally completed the first one I hated it. I waited a few days, without creating anything, then sat down and finished 4 collages in less than an hour.

Here is the first one (which I am thinking of giving my mom for Mother's Day).

And here is the new, less complex version, using the same purple and lace paper but minus the flower and patchwork motif. Which do you prefer?
