Illo Friday - Total...

...as in "Total Chaos." Which was kind of like what today was like, at least in my mind. Good thing I have this nifty new moleskine sketchbook to explode my day's thoughts into. That's pretty much how I stay sane.

Sketchbook doodley hoo "Total Chaos"

The collage mess is scraps from the day, wrappers, tea bags, photo transfers, then some mod podge and ink thrown on top, and a little girl in the corner who is able to keep it together and hold her dress taught in a presentable ladylike fashion while her legs have ended up on the other side of the page.

Yepp! I agree. This really is a great way to keep sane! And if a piece like this emerges from a totally chaotic day it's worth all the chaos :-) Great work!

This is wonderful. I've always seen collage as a form of controlled chaos. Love to make messes, just hate cleaning them up.
