365 Collages | Week 45 | Target Practice

The things one experiences alone with oneself are very much stronger and purer. Eugene Delacroix

Collage therapy with iHanna

My collage therapy consist of gluing pieces of paper from my stash to vintage Target Practice papers. I love this substrate so much, because it’s already in perfect squares, neatly piled, and I don’t have to do any cutting to get started.

I love sitting alone with myself, making this kind of art collages, one after the other. But I also like sharing them with you here. So thanks for joining me, and being on this journey with me. Here are seven new collages, very much inspired by my painted paper stash.

Target Practice Collges

Sometimes I cover every inch of the surface, and sometimes, like this week, I let some of the target practice printed circles peek through. I think it makes them even more interesting.

What do you think?

Thanks for leaving me a comment below letting me know which of these you like most! I love to know you looked at each one again to find a favorite. When you try to define what it is about that composition that you like (or not like), I feel like I’m am getting so much feedback and love. Then I take a second look at my own work and (sometimes) see it with new eyes.

Thank you!

    Congratulations! You are almost finished….

    It’s hard for me to pick a favourite – I like them all. I especially like the one where part of the target is showing. Provides a break from all the bright colour.
