collage necklace

My collages seem to be getting smaller and smaller. Other than they are so fun to make, I just can not get rid of even the smallest pieces of paper. I keep a box for all the bits of paper that practically need tweezers to handle them. Sometimes my intention is to go though the box and toss a few, but then I find myself arranging and gluing and a collage happens. This one is 1.5X1.5 in size. I decided to treat it as a cabochon and edged it with bead embroidery. Went perfect with a bunch of faux resin beads that I had made....sort of an art hanging, not on a wall but around the neck.

symbolic language

Title: Symbolic Language
Size: 4x8x2.5
Wood Block Collage

Thank you Joy for the kick in the pants...I haven't posted in a long time, life got in the way.
This collage is done on a painted wood block. Helps recycle, saves on frame cost, and will either stand on a mantle or attach a hanger and hang on a wall.
