Yes, making art has indeed gone from a "I've always wanted to try this" to a passion. I spent lots of time this summer making collages and practicing techniques and, while I don't think I'm an artist, I've certainly enjoyed this new way to express myself. Here are a few of my favorite pieces I've made. The image transfers are from my own photographs.
This is one of my favorites. The photo of the flower in the middle is the first image transfer that worked really well and it's of a zinnia from my garden.
This is one of my favorite mistakes. I ended up painting the flowers in the middle when the photo transfer I attempted failed. It's in my room at school.
