but I'm not. Instead I'm sewing paper. I don't know why, but making these collages is a very fun way to procrastinate right now. At this rate, I may be selling some of these at Artfest or artFiberfest since I've yet to make anything for my vendor booth and I seem to be on a role here. They're a bit addicting. Sewing paper feels so rebellious (oh crazy me).
For these two, I started with a piece of music paper backing and sewed scraps on the front. This was much easier than the one on the previous post where I just sewed paper scraps together planning to sew or glue on a back later. If you ever try making something like this, learn from my mistake; use a backing to sew onto!
I am always so curious about the people in the photos. Why were they abandoned by their families? How did they get separated from those that loved them? It feels good to give them a moment, some acknowledgment, a new purpose, maybe even a future. I'm sure there will be more of these to come, for now, packing (or at least thinking about it) is in my future.
