Latest work: "Japanese Collage"
As I was cleaning up, I began playing with those bits and created this small collage. I especially like how the design looks like a Japanese kanji character. I just hope I've not said something offensive with it!
The postage stamp is from my collection, and was published between 1940 and 1944. When our family moved from Hawaii to Japan, I remember looking out the plane window to see Mt. Fuji rising out of the clouds. Quite the sight. Hence the use of this "Blue Fuji" stamp here.
On to the next project -- a 6.5' table runner for the dining room table, done as one continuous collage. At least that's the plan . . .
