Day 4 Abstract Collage

I made this piece using bits and pieces of papers I have collected over the years.

Black piece of cloth in the middle is a Sashiko (Japanese style of embroidery/quilting technique) sample I made a while back.

Now that I regularly do collages, I am constantly in the look out for interesting papers to add to my collection.

I made sure I grabbed my paper place mat and fortune cookie fortunes & bags when we went to Chinese restaurant for my brother-in-law’s 25th birthday dinner last night.

I better keep churning out my collages though, because these papers keep piling up and beginning to invade my room….!



About kabablanket

I work at an academic library by day. It is a pretty sweet arrangement for me, because I go home at 4:30pm everyday and I get to do whatever I want after that. These days I mostly go home and work on my collages or drawings. I'm in process of becoming more disciplined about art., challenging myself to show up to create something everyday. I am a self-taught artist (it's so difficult for me to call myself an artist, but I'm trying). I look down when I'm walking (something I've always done) because I'm always on the look out for something interesting to pick up. Another one of my favorite past time is to go to library book sales and used book stores. I love magazines too. I want to do 1% better every day.
