On Tuesday, I went to my Pilates class in the morning, but felt a bit "off" as the day progressed. By night time I was experiencing the full impact of a stomach virus which left me out of commission for a couple of days. I'm feeling better now and apologize for missing the latest posts on my favorite blogs. I'll be catching up in the days to come.
One thing I could do, while lying on a bed flanked by two cats, was to create a magazine photo collage to use as an example in a collage demo I'll be part of tomorrow afternoon.
I have to make a confession - I love to clip photos and illustrations from magazines and, rather than let them sit in files and folders, I really enjoy making collages with them. It's a low key creative activity which can be done in the evening while watching TV. When I put my magazines out to be recycled, they've already been recycled to a certain extent!
The photos in this collage were culled from several magazines. I was thinking of adding a word or two to it, but right now I'm enjoying it as it is.
I have a lovely blank journal, hand made by artist Sue Bleiweiss, which has heavy enough pages to use as a collage book. These are a couple of my favorite pages from that. I do enjoy adding words, hand drawn sketches and little curlicues to these pages. Easy, creative fun!
I'll be gathering more examples of collage as today progresses and hope to post them tomorrow!
Hope your day is going well.
What are you looking forward to this weekend? Hope it's something good!
