I am definitely a Paper Squirrel, saving every little piece of paper I can. I squirrel away all the papers that I think have potential to be in a collage, some day. I think you have to be somewhat of a Paper Squirrel to be a collage artist. You need a good collection of different papers, in different sizes, patterns, and qualities. Looking through them is what gets me going with collage.

Sometimes I’ll have an idea what I want to do and express, but seldom does my vision come through. My intuition takes over and my hands start gluing papers together.

I’m still fascinated with the vintage substrate I’m using for these collages, so it is still peaking through on most of them.

Here are seven new collages for week 17 of 2018, made by this Paper Squirrel, right in the middle of my 365 Collages Project…
