"Woodland Library"--the Polyvore gods relent.

Here is the digital collage I had intended to post yesterday, which disappeared after I created it on Polyvore.com. I was hopping mad!! But whatever happened, tonight when I went to the site, there was my little Woodland Library, looking sort of like an illustration from a children's book and none the worse for its hiatus in a digital black hole. In gratitude, I left the Polyvore link intact, so if you click on the image, you will go to their site, wherein you'll see all the elements that I combined to make the work (what they call a "set"). However, that it is not quite how I envisioned the piece.  Because, for one thing, PV has a limit as to how many selections you can include in a set (50, including "clones"). Not quite like limiting the number of brushstrokes you can use in a painting, but still hampering.  Not that I haven't done things on PV, most of them for 3SIXTY5, that I consider to be very good. This just isn't one of them. For this vision, I wanted a lot more depth and detail than I could achieve on PV. But hey, it's still fun! Nothing wrong with that!


  1. oh wow!!! this looks like a great place to sit and read....wonderful collage!!!

  2. There's definitely a story going on here! Glad you included a wise old owl - I looked for an owl and was not disappointed!!

  3. what a lovely setting for a library - thank you so much for your kind words on my blog - it made my day!

  4. I like seeing all the individual pieces you used. This has an Alice in Wonderland feel to it for me. Two thumbs up!


I love to hear from you!
