Todays card with layers of this and that, mostly beige tissue paper, lots of tissue paper. Even painted tissue paper from before. I always use a glue stick, except when I glue thin papers like these, then I use matte medium of some sort and spread it out with a paint brush. It keeps the bubbles out and the papers from tearing.

I miss my art journal a lot, but between trying to have a social life, making next issue of the embroidery magazine and working some I have only had very little time to sit in the studio corner. Though I am up to date with the Art Every Day for a Month project, and that feels good too.
The serendipity of my collages always surprise me, but even though I never plan ahead I am almost always happy with the outcome. I loose myself, my train of thought derails but I am not confused. I am calm. It is soothing to make art, it feels like nutrition to the soul, it creates a map of my breath movements. :-)
All collages available for purchase. Let me know if you are interested in framing one of these beauties in your home. Each square collage area measures 13?13 centimeters (5?5″). It will fit perfect in a Ribba frame from IKEA. Also check out my Etsy Shop and the project Art Every Day participants!
