I love collages, but it always takes me so long to make them, as I look and look and move things around so much. So I decided not to do it that way, but rather just glue things down as I went along.
Here is my first one, and I had wished I had stopped a step earlier.
Here is the second one and I mostly like it. But what was great about both of them was that I had fun making them. Layers on layers of bits and pieces.
A few posts back I showed some circle photos I had taken, and wanted to share some more images from that day. We spent a few hours poking around a few old (1910-1930 I believe) abandoned cabins.
The buildings were made of logs, but in places pieces of wood were added to the interior of the walls. My guess is they used everything they got to keep out the elements. The winters are long and cold.
I thought the color and patterns in these walls was just beautiful.
Some of the walls - especially close to the roof line had tin cans that were opened and nailed to the walls.
Once again I thought they were beautiful.
The roof of a few of the cabins were also partially shingled in pieces of tin.
And old tins were lined up on a few shelves.
Everywhere I looked I saw beauty....
