    Life Is A Collage

    Life is a collage of light and dark, soft and hard, good and badSomewhere in the images, the words, & the colors we have to find and use the lines, the scissors, and the glue. If we are really fortunate we may find a foundation upon which we can put our images and thoughts...

    A Kaleidoscope

    I love color and symmetry. So it seems natural to create a bright, kaleidoscopic collage. I have some glittery scrapbook paper I plan to use. I won't make it bigger than 8 1/2 x 11, though. I want it to fit in a 3 ring binder. And in the years to come, I will look through...

    Collages Give Me An Escape

    There's something about the whole process of making a collage that gets me out of my enviroment. I love sitting in my room and going through magazinesand finding things that make me feel good. Sometimes, I do it just to get away from everyone and everything going on in my life...

    Artistic ones, using words.

    Random. Approximated. Painting with words of many hues!

    Group By Group

    I want to make a hard copy of my stories and poems. I just may show it off on my birthday in January. And for all the groups/topics that I have written a lot about, I envision a table of contents collage. I hope to find giftwrap or scrapbook paper for an appropriate background...

    To Remind Myself

    I put together images that reminded me of who I am alone, why it is good to be single, and added things I enjoy when I am alone or with others. The reason I included the very married Mary of "It's a Wonderful Life" is because it always cracked me up at the point in the movie...

    Collage Addiction Helps Make Sense Of The World

    I have a whole room full of things I've cut or torn out of magazines, junkmail, catalogues, etc.   It started fifteen years ago when I had to move across the US.   The move meant we would have to pay to ship all of our belongings across the country.   My husband had a couple...

    A picture, simple shot from out of nothings can turn into a very impressive art work. It's a world I can express dreams and fantasies. I started with this hobby just before I got married. I found pictures sleeping in dark boxes. Pictures which could have brought smiles, if it...

    So the collages I make aren't normal ones.

    They're of celebrities that I like and when I've made them I put them on Instagram. If you had any requests for one I could totally make one for you and hopefully you'll like it.

    My Art

    I can't draw or paint, so making collages helps me express myself in an art form.  I make "treasure maps" to help me focus on future goals and dreams.  And sometimes I work with pictures that are just fun.  I've just started collecting pictures of faeries...

    My Collage

    Someone suggested that I make a collage about my life. I'm sure she had in mind for everything to be on one page, though my collage is more of a collection. I have filled a 3 ring binder with dozens of pages of different activities, interests, and misc. aspects of my life. I...

    Collages of a Different Sort

    I've been making collages for years. There not what you would call traditional and many people don't realize their collages.  About a year ago my friends and family encouraged me to submit them to a gallery for consideration.  Since then, I've had collages in galleries...

    Bits Of This And That

    One of the amazing things about collage is how I can start with a heap of random stuff, and wind up with something beautiful.There isn't much value in a heap of fabric scraps, twine, and soda bottle tops.  But with vision and creativity, I can take those bits of junk, items of...
