New Collage With Recycled Papers
Three different types of papers were used in this collage: painted magazine papers, Citra Solv papers, and a piece of baked parchment from underneath a loaf of home baked bread.
When it comes to making art, nothing gets thrown out until I decide whether or not it’s usable. As time goes on, I’m enjoying more and more the challenge of making something from materials of humble beginnings, rather than manufactured art supplies. Part of it is the creative challenge, and the other part of it is my deep concern for the environment. Don’t we have enough “stuff” already?
A Mosaic of Collages
I was so inspired by the very talented artist Cat Storey’s blog post about a completed project in which she created art every day for a month and posted it to her blog. At the end of her project and in this post, she shows a mosaic of the resulting work.
After seeing hers, I wanted to create one of my own. This is just a screen shot of my collage set on flickr. Kind of fun to see a whole array of different images together. Still, I think I like Cat’s better!
Have a great weekend. I hope it includes some time outdoors and some time for art!
