I’ve had a few more little successes in the studio today, and will accept them as they come. I know this won’t last forever. I got away with just watering in the garden this morning and then gave myself permission to come inside and play.
Two of the collages that I did today seemed to require torn, irregular margins, so I mounted them on larger paper. In this case, much larger. These are 5 x 5 inches mounted on 14 x 11-inch heavy drawing paper.
Other collages that I finished were made just a little larger than the desired finished size and then trimmed to size, as in this post. I’m beginning to see an important difference between the two treatments. I think I lean toward the torn edges, especially when using weathered and handmade papers.
