She got more treats when she wore the blue ribbon.
It's time again for the great POD challenge! Do you remember? It's been afew months since I've done one. This is the blog challenge where Lisa gives me "something" related to the theme and I give her "something" and then we each have to create a collage with what we are given. Lisa gave me the four little dogs that you see above. I don't know if I am rusty, or perhaps unused to Victorian dogs, but I had much trouble with these dogs! They look simple enough, but these dogs had minds of their own.
When I was young, one of my favorite toys was a set of 24 little plastic dogs. Each one was a different breed and they all came in little boxes. So my first collage attempt was to put these little dogs into bright little boxes. I may be going crazy, but I swear, they did not like it. Now normally, when I have to collage something, I think to myself, "What does this want?"... meaning...does it want contrast, texture, lines, highlights etc. When my first collage didn't turn out, I asked the little dogs what they wanted. Of course, they said they wanted their masters! I eventually found four masters, or rather mistresses for them. All kinds of stories about them and their mistresses popped into my head. However, I'm not writing a novel here. After completeing two collages I also figured I didn't really need to do a set of four. The other two little dogs will just have to wait for another day.
