Inspiration Collage: Sunday's Are For Dreaming


This past Sunday I spent the evening with a friend, creating inspiration collages. When I suggested that we go through my old magazines and tear out images that we love, she was a little confused. You see she had never experienced the joy of creating a collage based on your mood and what inspires you... but she was excited and eager to try something new.

I explained the process to her and although it took a little while for her to catch on, in the end I think she did a great job at expressing a particular mood that was inspiring her at the moment. My joy came in the fact that not only was I partaking in one of my favorite activities, but I was also able to share this moment with a friend who thoroughly enjoyed the process and appreciated me sharing it with her. The fact that you could see the sense of accomplishment on her face once her project was complete and that I had a part in that was such a great feeling.

So here it is. The end result of my lovely Sunday Evening. I love how mine (the first one) seemed to end up creating a very light, airy, daydream like quality while my friends was dark, edgy and a tad rebellious which expressed our moods, at the time, perfectly.
