The inspiration for this came when I stayed with a friend recently who hadn’t been seeing too much of his room mate, and commented, ‘we’ve just been passing like ships passing in the night’. Nice turn of phrase. Newspaper cut out letters are seriously fiddly and laborious, but I was rather pleased in the end. I don’t know about the old cliche of using collage letters in crime so that your handwriting can’t be identified . . . my gluey fingerprints are all over this piece. Decided to go for something a bit more minimalist to what I usually do, so lots of negative space here.
Belated happy new year – successful arting and crafting for 2014!
