I start all my collage pieces by choosing items that inspire me and the piece grows and evolves from there. In this piece I started with the petrified mushroom which I found on one of my many nature walks. I felted some areas and used antique lace and material in others. I used a dried cactus leaf punctured with rusted nails. Burlap, beads, shells, wood,plastic and crocheted items are also used in the piece. This is named two worlds because the piece reflects the two worlds I live in with many roads and destinations.
