|There is always a lot of cutting, tearing, pasting going on around my studio, but I have always wanted to take a collage class.....|
|I've been having fun making collaged postcards and note cards with the wrappers...something I try to do every new year.|
|I went to Scrap that same day and found 15 or 16 of these "starts" -- collaged postcards with dictionary pages and sheet music and gesso....|
|They just called out to me and I had to bring them home and work on them to make collages. A collaboration with an unknown artist. How mysterious and fun.|
I can't wait to see what I do with them.
|Then, on Wednesday night, I packed up my scraps and apron and headed on over to my first collage class at Fort Mason here in SF. A beautiful location right on the SF Bay and SF City College has an art campus over there....|
|I make collages every day but they are all pretty small. Most of them are like the pile above, 4x6 inch postcards to mail out. I have made some 8x10 collages as well. My goal is partly to learn to work in a larger format.|
|My finished collage......I have no idea why all that pink is on there since I don't even like pink...in fact, I don't like the collage either. I think I will cut it up into postcards. Maybe it will work that way...|
