Inspired by Misty

It is no secret that I love Misty Mawn's work, in fact I have just purchased a second collage from her - if I can bear to part with it, then a friend will receive it very soon. If not then they may receive a piece of my art work instead. This piece is 4" x 6" and there is actually not the contrast between the green of the figure and the green of the background shown in the scan. Several weeks ago I loosely followed Misty's instructions for her background technique (Cloth, Paper, Scissors, vol 7), and prepared a handful of them. This is the last, and I have so enjoyed playing 'in' her style as I journey towards my own.

Oh, Julie - this is beautiful! The colors are so subtle and the images work so well together.
Love the way your style is developing.

You are very thoughtful (and generous) to purchase a Misty for your friend. Am sure it will be hard to part with!
