The Evolution of a Mixed Media Collage

I’ve been on a real bird kick lately, and this mixed media piece evolved from a poem I wrote and a photo my husband took in Yosemite National Park, California. I entitled the poem, “Broken Promises.”

I needed a red-breasted robin so I could create a visual poetry piece, so I dug through past pics until I found the bird. Then, I put the two together using Photoshop CS5.

Read about the entire process: Mixed Media, Grace, and the Red-Breasted Robin.
