Garden of Eden Collage

(Oops – original title was College Collage. I decided that was dumb but took out the wrong word. D’oh!)

My new living room has the words “All Because Two People Fell In Love” plastered across the wall, no doubt above where a large family photo used to hang. Not the most encouraging thing in the world given the circumstances that had caused me to move here in the first place. So after some thought and joking around with my brothers, I decided I’d find or make an Adam & Eve picture and find a way to conceal the “in love” bit, so it’d say “All Because Two People Fell” instead.

A few weeks later, I had to make a self-expressive collage for one of my classes. Perfect opportunity, right? Here’s how it turned out:

All Because Two People Fell
All Because Two People Fell

I haven’t hung it yet, and I don’t know whether I will. Maybe I’ll just ask the homeowner if she’d mind me simply unsticking the vinyl lettering. Or maybe I’ll paint over it a little to calm the stark edges down a bit. What do you think?

  1. Well, you could always leave the words there put pictures of your kids below it. Because no matter what happens/has happened, you still have them because two people fell in love.

    Though I have to admit, the collage idea is cute too.

  2. I thought about putting pictures of the kids there too, or the photo I had on facebook of the three of us together. Honestly the sign doesn’t bother me so much anymore anyway; I just have to explain it when people come to check out the new place for the first time ;-p I do like the collage though. I might scan it in and digitally smooth it out just a little so it’s slightly less psychedelic. we’ll see! 🙂

  3. I did end up hanging the poster. “Santa” brought me a frame in Christmas ’09, so I hung this and just used some blue painter’s tape to cross out the In Love bit. All because two people fell. I like it.
