My Need to Collage
Man, I love that.
Quite honestly I can't draw so it was a way to express...stuff, back in that faraway land, when Keith worked at night and I had the time, and the wherewithall, the loneliness, whatever you want to call it. the NEED.
In More recent years I went through some really un-explainably horrific extended family...stuff...which wound up being most healthily dealt with by amputation of a limb of my family tree. Sounds awful, I am sure but After time has passed that limb removal has been immensely positive for myself and my own sapling of a family tree. At the time this slow painful amputation was occurring I did collage to express...stuff...I didn't show anyone, and I don't even know if I could find what I did, but I want to do this again.
Not amputate anything, silly. Collage. Sure, I love to make hair accessories, and I am really liking how I am starting to find some happy takers of my upcycled clothing but Last night while I was stitching hair clips I took a look at my messy pin cushion, threads, felt bits, and I just felt this urge to collage again.
So I will.
Maybe you'll see it here.
My sincere thanks to Torann for being one inspiration to start collaging again. Love her work. her website '
