Bouquet of Life

Studio Friday: A Floral Treat


I like flower arranging. I like to mix flowers with a lot of leaves and fruits. I add 'sign of life' in my collage bouquet. You can find hands (of course), frying pan, tees, a bangle and a little human on top.

Real flower arranging is easy, I know when to stop. In collage, I had to look at it again and again because material is abundant.. I didn't know when to stop!

Here, please enjoy my stop then!

Materials: Clinique and Palmolive ads and pages from Elle Decor.

The flower hands are really pretty. I used to speak sign language and I love trying to incorporate signs into my artwork.

i like the whole idea and composition. i wonder what the sign-hands say, as i tried to read it in USA finger-spelling and it didn't come out anything i could read. What does it say in your country's hand-alphabet?
