It's no secret....

that chickadees are my "go to" subject to design around.  My second project for Lilla Rogers MATS
Bootcamp for February was to design something in the round beginning with research into plate designs.  I chose to do this using collage.  A medium I've been using lately simply because I love painting paper.  Coming up with new textures to tear up and use for collage is so much fun and full of surprises.  Speaking of which, I love the surprise element of this course.  It starts with a topic to research and sketch/paint and then the actual project to be completed using your inspiration.  It takes you places you wouldn't have on your own.

This plate became part of a fund raiser for our local bird rehabilitation centre (Le Nichoir).
