365 Collages | Week 20 | Summer Feels like this

What does summer feels like to you, if you describe it in art? This is how it feels to me right now, in collage form. Seven new collages – again.

I get a lot of Summer Feels from these collages, and hope you do too. But naming these more abstract patches is getting harder and harder… I raking my brain over here, but so far I’ve managed to give each of the +140 collages I’ve made this year a title.

Here are the 7 collages I have made most recently, for my 365 Collages project. Enjoy.

Oh and please please let me know in the comments how your midsummer was if you celebrate, and which of these collages you like best?

The last one is another bird that is actually neon pink, but my scanner is not very good with neon colors, so you get this;

You can imagine the sunset coloring him a much brighter pink, can’t you?

    week 20/+140 pieces of art!!!! wow Hanna!!! your a machine! :-) well done! i think this week i am drawn to Parrot not in a cage just cuz i like the parrot image so much. naming all of these must be daunting….how about using ice cream flavors, flowers, artist names….. even if they don’t “match” the collage, plus, thers always good ole numbers and the alphabet. thank you for sharing, always inspiring!!

    • iHanna says:

      Nah, no collage machine here – the struggle is real, but so arethe joy & the wins, right?

      Thanks for the title suggestions. I might try the alphabet one. 7 collages on A perhaps?

    Such a wonderful ‘summer series’ Hanna, MY summer feels like ‘Sweet pea’ but the sunset collage speaks to me as well. Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday, have a great day! Love from sunny Holland

  6. Your project is so lovely! I like “By the Ocean” best this week. It has such a calm, peaceful effect. Nice work!

  7. Iryna Barysava says:

    The ones with the birds are especially lovely! The sweet pea – also. Very bright and cheerful!

    • iHanna says:

      Thanks Iryna, birds are always a hit & great focal points in collage. I might do a bird theme soon, or what do you think… you can never have too many birds, right?

    I love “Sweet Pea” and “International Contacts”!
