Collage A Day

A Collage A Day
In order to jump start my creative batteries I am creating a mixed media collage piece to post every day. It's all about "upcycled" paper that would otherwise end up in a landfill. And I'm also hoping to generate a smile or two. I’m fascinated by language and am often inspired by oxymorons, onomatopoeia and odd turns of phrase as you can see by my titles. I enjoy giving new life and meaning to rejected and neglected items. Disparate images are juggled and juxtaposed from within my vast palette of old papers and ephemera.

"Controlled Chaos"

I've been making handmade paper and I recently shredded and chopped some pages from a book of old art deco designs and I used them to make some very cool "confetti" paper.  The pieces that came out of the shredder were so interesting on their own that I kept some to use in the collages that I am presently working on which also include some other bits from the original book (and other stuff).
