Isolation is aloneness that feels forced upon you, like a punishment. Solitude is aloneness you choose and embrace. I think great things can come out of solitude, out of going to a place where all is quiet except the beating of your heart. Jeanne Marie Laskas

I am doing a 365 collage project this year, and this week I’m presenting you with seven new collages fresh from my art table. They’re a mix of printed, commercial patterned papers and my own hand-painted papers, with some magazine pieces thrown in for color and variation.

Often times I feel that I (at least try to) cut very straight and precise pieces for my square collages, but here I didn’t. I’ve let the jagged edges stay, the uneven pieces are glued down as they were. Maybe that can be another kind of beauty?

  1. Thanks for sharing your pretty collages with us, Hanna! Congrats on completing Week 33! Whoohoo!! Go, Hanna, go!!

  2. Hanna, I enjoy the torn, jagged edges very much. It is much more interesting to look at.
    take care ~~rita

  3. You cannot keep everything… I think I like that one the best Hanna but I do love them all, the colors and ‘wonky cuts’ add extra interest and I love those little pieces that have text on it… have a great weekend! Love from Holland.
