When I want to take a break from the many patterns and other nonsense I draw I usually turn to collage.
Sometimes I will make cards to use as snail mail and sometimes I will work in a scrapbook that I dedicate especially to my collages. The book has colorful pages, so I already have an interesting background to start with.
Here are some collages that I did in the last couple of weeks:
The mixing and matching in collage making always makes me happy. I never plan out my collages, I just take it one step at a time and something comes together organically. I really like that process.
Hope you are doing something where the process makes you happy, whatever the result, and wishing you a wonderful and artsy day.
