While the weekly collages are my main form of expression right now, I also try to get some art journaling done – and keep up with the editing photos and deleting the bad ones. Here are a few of my recent favorite snapshots: Related PostsCreativity in Snapshots Creative Snapshots | Forsythia in Bloom I got […]

365 Collages | Week 4

The first collage, Lesson in being Crazy, is the +1 from week three. Then when the last day of week 4, Sunday, came around it was status quo, or rather -6 for the weekly goal of seven square collages! It’s easy to get behind, but the weekly goal (7 collages) helps keep me on track. […]

365 Collages | Week 3
