Creative Challenge #116
I made this 10x14 mixed media collage for the creative challenges on Etsy. This week it was curated by co-host CindyCreativeCrochet and we were to create something inspired by family.
I used my own family for inspiration. "I think" most of it is self-explanatory, such as the stages of growth in our daughter and hubby & me sitting on the moon. The fairly boat on the right (got a little too much glare) is called "unknown" and it is meant to signify all the uncertainty associated with a child starting to prepare for college and beyond. Of course, the birds are the "flying the nest" theme!
I painted the background with watercolor & collaged everything else. I am not as shocked or unhappy-looking as the mom on the moon--I am actually quite proud!
