January went well. Once I got the evil stuff out of my system I no longer craved it. But now February has arrived and with it my seasonal nemesis—those little candy hearts with the sayings on them. Yes, I adore them! It will be hard to get through February without succumbing to at least one of those dear little boxes, but I am vowing to stay strong and resist temptation. To that end I printed a full page photo of candy hearts to use in collages. I thought maybe some "virtual" indulgence would substitute for the real thing.
I am new to collage. (More about that here) I just started making some small collages for my own pleasure and as an ongoing exercise in composition. I am having fun with it. Here are my results using the candy hearts.
So, those candy hearts are, well, busy! It was harder to find things to work with them than I expected. This one seems a little too cluttery and valentine-y for me.
