Welcome to a peek into a retreat my daughter insists I share.
I am compelled by the soothing relief it brings to weave pictures together as seen in dreams and offer up some of my favorites. When solitary familiar items or photographs call out from the pages of a magazine or second-hand books or catalogs or you name it, I'll bring them together so they can complement each other and amuse. In making collages, I enjoy precision cutting with Exacto blades Nº 11 (to be exact) and the very useful restickable glue stick which allows me to lift and tuck and knit images together.
Few collages fully capture what is intended because the palate of images one can find and use have their own story and emotional tug. A playful title helps but can lead interpretation astray.
Patterns are lurking everywhere and components attract as in a matching game.
