My friend Brian recently sent me some blank rolodex cards. He has an an old one and many blank cards. The size is a fun one- a bit bigger than an ATC. I had great fun with this- It is fun knowing that these are now in his collection. Leave it to artists to find a great new use for something!
The title of the post is the title of this hand cut and pasted collage. The background is from an altered photograph. My partner took a photograph of a shadow on a wall- it's from a wooden bird we had hanging near a window. I played with it and printed out a version I liked and then collaged the rest. There is a sense of mystery in this one for me and I like that.
This collagestarted with the piece in the right corner- I had cut out a portrait out of that piece and it ended up on top of the blue painted paper and I loved the look. The rest just came together. I love it when I finish a piece and feel as though it just made itself- taken over by the muse.
This hand cut and paste collage was a lot of fun. I was given a whole box of old school stuff- flash cards- words games and such so that's where the informal word came from. I pulled that one out of the stack and took off from there. It's fun to try different ways to start a piece.
Change of Plans is the name of this collage- it's hand cut and pasted. I love looking at floor-plans and house plans. I have collected some old ones and I like using then in pieces. This was part of a series I did around the theme of what home means.
