Making myself do collage

As my last few efforts at collage have not been at all successful, I decided to just DO some today.  It didn't take long.
I got out the 6 pieces I had done recently, cut them randomly and then pasted them back together.


I decided to just cut and paste.  At first I omitted two pieces of cut-up bits and it was ok. I actually thought I had only left out one piece and didn't worry about it. But, as I was cleaning up, I found that there were two pieces. So I added them to the bottom.

Not a fabulous piece of art but something to think about. And I have learnt a method that could well come in useful when designing in the future.

And it was enjoyable to just do it for its own sake, not thinking that I would have any particular outcome.

Your collage trails remind me of the wonderful time we had in art classes (rmit) where we used this medium in our life drawing. I wonder what would happen if you used this medium to replicate some of those gorgeous flower photos you sent me, or indeed pasted a picture of penny in the park? Happy pasting....

Thanks theregatha, I think I am reverting to some of those classes. I still have the life drawing collage somewhere, not knowing what to do with it but not wanting to throw it away.
Maybe I could do a flower collage that might translate into a tapestry. I really want to be doing one but have no interesting designs.
