A digital collage made for the Art Journal Caravan 2013. This month's stop on our around the world tour is Japan. I'm not a huge fan of Japanese art, culture, food, etc. Don't dislike it, it just isn't a country on my bucket list.
However, it has a lot of neat things going for it such as cranes, mountains, cherry blossoms, and haiku.
For this collage, I used 3 background papers from the March kit layered and blended in a variety of ways, then added the various elements.
I wrote the haiku which reads:
cherry blossom pink
sparrows soar in aqua sky
nature sighs softly
