More thanks. I think technically doing these has taken practice - getting a feel for how different papers act, how things look when they're put together a certain way, what kinds of distressing are possible. But visually and practically it's a way of life - always seeing little pieces that might fit together, having a desk covered with scraps, seeing key pieces, looking around and experimenting till a collage is done. I always have several started, in different stages on their way.
'Having a desk covered with scraps', yes this certainly helps creating opportunities. I remember a conversation with a friend. I was telling her that strict order is death and some relative amount of chaos is the proof of life (on a desk or elsewhere).
Thanks, Steve! Yes, I'm in some kind of phase here - and quite happy with the recent work myself. I'm not really sure where it comes from - except that it comes from the incredible scrap pile on my desk
chance and change - those two go together well. change is risky and exciting. but safe and harmless fun? it's kinda like safe sex, who wants it? ok I'm being silly now o_O it happens to me when I'm bored and tired, like now.
