Mixed Media Monthly Challenge

Rachel Kleinman, a member of The Crafter's Workshop design team, asked me to participate in a monthly challenge blog she is also on the design team for.  The blog is called "The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge."  Each month there is a prompt -- visual or thematic -- and readers are challenged to create something inspired by it.

The challenge this month is to create something inspired by this photo:

I started by creating collaged deli paper circles on a dark green background and then it just kind of evolved into something entirely different.  Isn't that exciting?  My finished project is not what I expected, but I never would have created it if not for the inspiration photo!

Here it is:

I love it when projects go sideways.  For me, art making is all about embracing whatever comes rather than trying to control the outcome.

What will you create inspired by this photo?
