|my circle collage|
This circle collage was inspired by Karena of Magic Jelly (check out her wonderful Flickr set). I loved the two beautiful collages she posted so much I wanted to try it out for myself.

My circles also have a concept running through them: travel. Here are some of the sources (if you click on the image you can have a closer look):
a globe from a Vermeer painting (from an old calendar); a boat seen in the sunset on the Thames (from a 1950s magazine); decorative motifs from Indian paintings (another calendar); an excerpt from Coleridge's poem, 'The Ancient Mariner' (a loose page from an old book); an envelope from Paris; a piece of old, 1940s map; scraps of Japanese chiyogami paper; a poster for 'Les Amants de Venise' from an 1950s newspaper; images of rusty surfaces and logs from a catalogue.
It was a lovely project to do. Thanks for the inspiration Karena!
