Flash of Red 2018-5

The choice this week was to emphasize line, shape or space. Shape won out.

Just to clarify- this is not a collage. It's a jewelry box that belonged to my aunt, Leslie Jones. Other than the name tags that you can just barely see in the upper right and the thread next to them, it's filled with little pieces of memorabilia from me.
Made a nice creative composition with this - like how soft it looks.

At first I thought this was a collage but it is a box with your trinkets in it, very pretty

I also thought it was a collage, great composition.

But it does feel like a collage and you know I love unifying things in collages. This meets my approval

I like this in black and white.
Maybe I should explore some time

I love all the different shapes you've captured. You even got some great pictures in here which is next weeks theme. It looks wonderful together in this collage

Thanks everyone! Just to clarify- it's not a collage. It's an old jewelry box I inherited from my Aunt Leslie. You can see some old name tags of hers in the upper right next to some old thread. The rest of the trinkets were added by me- some jewelry which friends have made, silk flowers from somebody's wedding (I can't remember whose now!), my Dad's tassel from college (the black blob on the left), a pill box that was my mother's, and some bracelets made for me by different friends- one out of polished stone, the other beads.

You got shapes in abundance and shapes within shapes. This looks especially good framed in black.

This is lovely!

Great on black. Very nearly arranged.

love the tag " bits and bobs" suits it well

Upon closer inspection one couldn't really see that this is not a collage. Thank you for taking the time to explain it to us and how fabulous that it became a collage even though it wasn't

Great capture and memory box of shapes and lines.

Evokes a very nostalgic feeling of home, plus curiosity--I want to see what's in there! Everyone loves a secret discovery.

Thank you my friends. I've photographed this collection before, but in a different way. I like how it's a collage, but not a collage!
