petit assemblage

I've been playing around with some collage and mixed media works recently. I had to put them aside until I had the rest of the supplies that I wanted. I have now acquired some little 4x4 canvases and some finishing spray and I'm looking forward to finalizing the layouts.

The inspiration was a tatty old French translation of Jane Eyre that I found for $1.00 in a local bookshop. I just started out randomly playing with bits of words and paper... and then I happened across the word petit and the word assemblage. Fate.

(for the non-French speakers, "petit assemblage" translates roughly to "little collection").
