First Five-a-Week Collages

Fun, fun, fun!  These first five went together so quickly.  In part because I set no rules, themes or judgements.  It went like this–simply pulled out an old magazine or a  pile of papers and a box of “collage elements” (read left-over scraps of whatever–stamps, junk mail, ticket stubs, coffee sleeves).  Without too much thinking I ripped out images and tore papers and put them together on my substrate, a piece of 8″ x 8″ cardstock.  A little tweaking here and there and then I just let it go!  At least for now my goal is to get a finished product without obsessing over the process.  I think it’s working……it’s enjoyable and it’s warming up my creative muscles.  So five down and 255 to go.  (5 collages  x  52 weeks = 260 collages for the year)  (more or less)  (do I use parentheses too much?)

About artsynaturenut

I'm a creative warrior constantly fighting my battle with my muse against that nasty critic. I love to paint and do mixed media work either on the canvas or with art journals. I'll dabble in just about everything--bookmaking, photography, writing, etc. and get excited about combining them. Hence the mixed media!
