I love making collages. Whenever I feel in need of new ideas I gather the scraps of paper from my drawing table and put them together. I try to stay out of thinking as long as possible and just move around the paper leftovers until it feels okay. Sometimes I cut them into simple recognizable forms or I add more drawing to it.
This always fuels my creative soul.
In the collage shown here I used a drawing I wasn’t too happy about but which had some nice textures in it. I also had some great soft green paper. I added some of the red paper I already used in the original piece. Then I cut some simple trees out of what I collected and voilà … a small forest was born.
