365 in 2013: Collage as Focus

365 in 2013: Collage as Focus

When you do something all the time, even if you move too slowly for others to notice, the constant motion produces surprising volume and achievement. Jude Hill How about #365in2013? I have made collages for many years now. It feels like through this constant making I’ve found “my” art form. I recently sold one of […]

Simplifying the process

First Day, collage made by iHanna on January 1st 2013. This was the first collage of the year in the 365 in 2013 challenge, now also known as the 365 somethings – open for those of you who wants to join in and challenge yourself! I tend to add in many very small bits on […]

365 Collages | Week 1

iHanna’s 365 Collages in one year starts now. The first week of 365 Collages in 2013 I made two pink collages, two green, one brown papered, one multi colored – and one b/w. I really really disliked one of these collages, but I’ve scanned it anyway to share it without comments. Part of doing this […]

365 Collages | Week 2

Another week of collages and I love, love, love this project! It is super fun to know where you should focus. It helps me a lot. Also it helps to do the big announcement of a 365 project instead of just trying to create “more” collages! It was super-duper fun to read all your lovely […]

365 Collages | Week 3

You begin with the possibilities of the material. Robert Rauschenberg Last week I noticed I was finding my way back (very unintentional) to dots and circles, a theme that followed me through 2012. Right now I’m in experimental mode, trying many different things but also, indulging in my favorite colour. Pink! Hover over the image […]

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 5

Five weeks into the year and I still love this project of 365 Collages! And I’m keeping up, much to my own surprise. Today I cut up a new pile of cardstock to cover with bits of pretty papers to make new collages. My redesigned desk, the polka dot table, really makes me want to […]

365 Collages | Week 6 | Valentine Edition

I love this project! Yes, I really do ♥ the 365 somethings project! How about you? All my collages this week are Valentine inspired hearts, because, why not? Playful experimenting have been happening around here, influenced of course by Valentine month (week & Valentine’s day). Each heart is glued to my prefered watercolour substrate size […]

365 Collages | Week 7

Welcome to week seven of 365 Collages! The unintentional and serendipitous theme this week is cream as in the colour of cream… All of my seven artworks have some kind of bone white or off white bits to them, and most of them are overwhelmingly so. I feel they are rather calming to look at […]

365 Collages | Storing the Project

I have found the perfect storage for my square collages! I love this wooden box, painted gray, that now resides on my desk. At the back it holds blank, unused cardstock and then finished collages, in order of appearance from the start of my 365 project! All within handy reach! Love it! Related PostsPainted wooden […]
