Yesterday, on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I decided to make a new collage focusing on dreams. It seemed fitting, and I titled it The Eternal Sunshine.
I wanted to create something that would make people feel happy and inspired. I tried to give it a little hippie vibe, as if it could have come from the 60s and 70s. I filled it with strong, beautiful women covered in vibrant, decadent clothing and accessories. And I didn’t do so in order to glorify excess or money or even physical beauty, instead I wanted to celebrate fun and passion and fantasy. I picture these women as sort of my spiritual leaders, reminding me of who I am and who I can become. I then sprinkled in a little Brandon Flowers because, well, nothing makes me happier.
Materials: A $4 thift store frame that I painted a seafoam green, blue and purple markers I used to color in some of the lips, a glue stick, my trusty gold glitter Mod Podge, and recent issues of Nylon, Elle, W, Rolling Stone, and Entertainment Weekly.
I took a wide shot of it, which is at the very bottom of this post, and also posted some close-ups. I hope you enjoy it and that it makes you happy!
