I think that every piece of paper has a Story, and in my collages each of those stories gets to shine a bit.
This is toda’ys daily art card. I got a whole bunch of text pages with Hebrew text from the bible sent by a friend who is studying to become a priest. I like to incorporate text that I can’t read. Using these texts makes me think about her when I create and that is probably why I did use the Madonna image. Sometimes the art that comes out is about associations to me.
I like that my crammed collages tell a story with the papers I use. They remind me of kind people that give me paper packages to use. About swaps, secondhand finds and saved favorites. The Christmas wrapping is from Joanna who sent me a whole envelope filled with papers. The halo is a round sticker that I bought in town last month on sale. I like the round shape a lot.
Each piece of paper has a story, a origin, a path that it has traveled to be with me. I think that is really cool!

Have a great weekend!
