I believe art/photography/scrapbooking are all related and have similarities. You can use photos in art and they're a must in scrapbooking. Scrapbooking combines art and photography. You can photograph art and photography is art. Get it? Got it? Good. When I saw these pieces by Mati Rose McDonough I immediately thought "what a lovely combination of my favorite things in life = art, photography & scrapbooking!" I love the branches and pieced birds and the hand cut leaves and I love the patterned backgrounds and everything else about them.
I can't wait to go make something cuz I'm feeling major mojo vibes from these.
