Making collages that reflect the season is one of my favorite projects. I have many old Xmas stamps, too many in fact to possibly use up and they are itching to get into the mix of sparkles, glitter and paint. I'm a tad chary about the holiday itself, but love the visuals and the delight of others, so it works for me. More collage Xmas to come.....
Last of 3. I'm wondering what it means to do 3 rather than 1 and then something else....hmmmm, it does give me a chance to see what happens with similar materials. Anyway, it's fun to ruminate visually on winter, it's such a beautiful season, but I'd currently settle for some tropical 40 degree days! Brrrr!
I really don't find this season blue in the sense of it being depressing, the snow and lights and conviviality are cheerful and a good anidote to the short days. But the color blue seems suitable to a season of whites with shadows that run the gamut of lavenders to turquoise. So blue it is!
The common-place fascinates me, it's part of why I do collage, the bulk of materials in printed matter is nearly overwhelming. After I get done juggling all the ephemera, the photos and prints stand as a sign for something more important than they are seperately. Or, that's the intent.
