Mixed media collaged uterus My cancer journey "journal"

 Hi guys! I have had this piece in my mind for a month or 2. While I was going through my cancer journey, I saved a lot of paperwork etc. The base of this is a vintage bike seat..a seaterus? LOL. I have never been a journal-er but I do appreciate them. Just not sure I have the attention span for an entire journal!

 I figured since my uterus, ovaries and tubes are gone, I needed to make a "memorial" one for my studio wall.There are pieces where the Dr. was explaining what was going on.

 There is paperwork from places I had surgeries..

 Notes from my parents..

 One of my hospital bracelets..

 Announcements for prayers from my church bulletin..

The survivor I stamped on tissue paper and mod podged on. I may color this with inks..haven't decided looks a bit stark. I also need to add some tubes and ovaries. I am thinking copper tubing and ..something.. I will share it again when it is finished! And yes my oncologist's name was Dr. fitting! I have more things from the studio to share and the craziest vintage Mid Century baboon lamp that Ed bought this weekend..why?? lol..because it was spectacularly crazy fugly cool... and he was unsupervised. Who doesn't need a 3 foot tall baboon lamp? LOL. Stop back! Til then, Julia

OK, I can't decide if your "Uterus" is crazy or genius...Or maybe it is crazy genius lol! It sure is a way to display all of your memories of the event. I often think of your miraculous journey, I love a good ending!
