Purple Swirl

This week officially ends my purple theme month. I skipped the cutesy title this time in favor of a purely descriptive one instead. I’m also quite impressed with myself that I finished 3 collages this month!

This collage features several different shades of purple and two kinds of faux texture. I like how the swirls in the center contrast with the rough knitted patterns that frame the collage.

Lavender Daze

Yes, another cutesy name for my latest purple collage. This time it’s Lavender Daze because of the lovely shade of flowers and also because I am starting to feel like I am in a daze.

This spring has been exceptionally busy for me, and I feel like I can’t keep up with everything I have to get done. This weekly collage creation was initially intended to be an enjoyable way to spend a little time with my creative side, but has instead turned into one more thing to check off of my never ending to-do list, hence the daze part of the title.

I am hoping this soothing lavender collage will serve as a reminder to slow down a bit. While creating it, I was drawn to this image of purple flowers overlooking the ocean. It seemed like such a peaceful and relaxing setting – just what I need in my own life now!

Purple Haze

This month’s theme is purple. I bet you already guessed it from the cheeky title I chose for this post. April is here and Easter has come and gone, but I’ve still got purple on the brain, which is why I selected it for this month’s collage theme.

Below is my first collage of the month. Ok, I realize it’s a little late but we’ve been having some gorgeous spring weather here, and I just had to get out and enjoy it.

You’ll also notice that this collage features a large purple flower, albeit seated in lovely lavender cupcake holder, and surrounded by other shades of purple.
