Collage Portrait: Devon


I made this collage portrait last week for Devon's going away and Griffin's first birthday. Her kids are so adorable, it was an easy project. I added a bird next to Miranda's picture, because her nickname is Bird. Griffin got a worm because boys are all about dirt and worms. Both are drawings taken from my Birds of a Feather collection.


My favorite part of these collage portraits are hidden underneath the paint. Here, I added a vintage sewing pattern and button paper as a nod to Devon's fabric design and love of sewing. The map signifies their moving to Germany (never mind that it's a map of England). You can see more of my collage portraits and order one for yourself here.

  1. Laura!! How awesome are you to make us one of your collages :o) :o) I love the understory! So rich and lovely. Thank you for capturing my kiddos in something you made by hand. I can't wait (till July, ugh) to get it up on the wall and enjoy it. Hugs xo! Devon
