Collage Art Every Day

AEDM collages
Collage from 5 -12th of November 2010, ongoing Art Every Day this month by iHanna.

Every Second Day…

I should call my project art every second day, because that is what it always becomes. I am not an every-day-kind of girl no matter how much I try, I just am too tired some days. Or I prioritize other things, like reading in bed in the evening when I come home. But I don’t mind. I keep going. I am persistent. I keep coming back. I keep wanting to fill that square surface with my own ideas.

Some days I prepare the next collage by starting it a little bit, adding a few pieces to the background. Or picking out a few scraps that I make a small might-use-pile from, on my desk. Other days I just do two cards using similar materials. It is all enjoyable, when it happens. When a collage doesn’t happen on some days, I enjoy other things, or I fall asleep early. ;-)

Wanna see each of the collages, they are after the jump!

Collage: What a ride it was
Collage: And now what
Collage: Seven button smile

Collage 8/11: Happy birthday wishes
Collage: On our street
Collage: A few of my favorite things

Collage11: Diffusion
Collage 12: Visibility
Collage 13: Breeze

My least liked are #5 and #12, but all the rest are kind of new collage favorites. I really like the two last ones above, pink and white collages. They are so very light that they almost don’t have any contrasts. They look way cooler IRL, because of the gesso and paint texture but they didn’t come out very nice scanned.

They’ve all got their titles written on the back. They are: 5 November: What a ride it was, 6 Nov And now what, 7 Nov Seven button smile, 8 Nov Happy birthday wishes, 9 NovOn our street, 10 Nov A few of my favorite things, 11 Nov Diffusion, 12 Nov Visibility and 13th of November Breeze.

  1. Beautiful work!

    I am inspired to try the scribbly thing ya got going there on top of the art work. Is that pastel? Crayon? Adding just one more dimension to an already gorgeous landscape, is very creative. I love it.

    I have decided to call my endeavor:
    Art Every Coupla Days –
    because somedays that’s how the dice roll.

    I am a word collector too.

    “Translucent” always gets me – right here. (heart)

  2. Genevieve, thanks! Scribbly is one great word too (as is translucent), yum! It is white crayon (caran d’arche, mah favorite). Art Every Coupla Day sounds nice, but will it keep you going/creating for Every Day? Maybe Art FOR every day is my way?

    TJ, hehe, I didn’t think about the lucky number thing, but you’re right, it is a smiling number. Hihi.

    Lisa W, I think my hands are permanently sticky after all these ones! ;-)

  3. I love the all-white collage! It’s very unusual.
    You started me on the art journal path. It’s very liberating. I’m a writer, but I don’t put any words on my journal art. I just want the pictures at this stage. Is this common?

  4. Laurie, how happy it makes me that you’ve found art journaling! I don’t write much in my art journal either, but a lot in other notebooks and online. I don’t know if it is common among writers but when I started art journaling it was difficult to find space to write on in my very filled pages, that I know. :-)

  5. these actually look really interesting when grided together as you have sown at the top. could be a fun way to display them. my favorites are the one that say “han sag” because i think the subtlety of color is lovely and the one with the little street and buiding hiding there because it has a playful quality. and art every other day is still pretty awesome!

  6. Lovely to see all your work… I think AEDM can be a great routine and energy booster with the collective energy of everyone creating :)

  7. Here’s the deal: Just keeping going is the most important thing! We all love the neat idea of making something every day. But even the people who have done that for a month or a year, say that they wouldn’t do it again. It’s a GREAT discipline! But something happens to my art when I try to do it. I don’t like it as much. I’m just a person who needs to let things germinate, I guess.

    I always love your collages. Fun. That’s what they say!

  8. great collages, Hanna ! So juicy with little surprises here and there.

    Love your collected words! Want to start my own collection !
    #1. wee

    Cute, isn’t it ?
    Have a great weekend !

  9. You are at the top of my blog list and I read your blog all the time and you are a true inspiration to me. Collage is a #1 creative love for me and I am doing a 4X4 every day this month and hope to keep it up. It is exciting each day to to start with a blank card and then see what the finished collage looks like. Everyone loves surprises, right? You also inspired me to decorate in my daily journal and what fun that has been! It breathes life into what may or may not have been a boring entry. Thank you Hanna. Please don’t ever stop inspiring all of us.
