Green Fairy

Here we are. Another 5x7 collage on canvas. The image is from Itkupilli, and you may recognize it from my big patchwork quilt collage.

A lot of those images I used in the patchwork collage, I really liked, so I'm probably going to do a bunch on 5x7's just to show them off better.

I finished that piece that was giving me problems the other night, and I think it came out quite good. It's very colorful! I'm having it photographed tomorrow so I won't be able to post it until then.

Now, I'm working on another Kelly Rae inspired piece, and as usual I'm having trouble. A brown oil pastel is to blame. I was using it to cover up a mistake, and well, things kinda got out of control, and now it looks like a brown pastel exploded on top of my collage.

I've been thinking all night and morning how to fix this little boo boo, and I think I might have an idea. I sure hope it works!

Michele, you are on a creative roll! Love the greens in this piece. Beautiful collage!

Whenever I overdo it with darker-color oil pastels, I blend the titanium white oil pastel in with it. Usually that will lighten it up enough after I blend it out really well.

Pam- I'm totally on a roll. :) I just finished my other Kelly Rae inspired piece which makes 3 total this week. woo hoo! I've got two more in "production".

Thanks for the pastel tip! I managed to fix it for the most part. It's not nearly as bad as it used to be thank goodness.
