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.
