Creating with collage!
I’ve recently been reunited with all my collage material. It is pure joy to haul all the brown envelopes of magazine pics out, dump them all over the table and get busy creating. Collage is a wonderfully creative and therapeutic activity. Give it a try if you are trying to work something out. Whatever comes out of the process is bound to be enlightening.
i love making collage projects too!
third lol, i’m digging the girl with the thick hair, like a rad female version of che
Hi Smiling Pilgrim. That rad Che girl was the first picture that floated to the top of the pile and caught my attention. Perfect for what I’m needing to work out and say today. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on this post 🙂
There is just something so non-threatening about cutting, arranging and pasting. Anyone with art anxiety really needs to try collaging out.
I used to enjoy art class when we brought magazines and cut them out. I particularly liked flowers and trees, which would be perfect to write poems about! This was a fun post and I do agree, very therapeutic process to create art from magazines into collages. Hugs, Robin
The many ways collage can be used in therapy as well as for personal development have literally filled books. I love the poem idea. I’d like to develop this tool in greater detail with particular emphasis on how writers can use collage to stimulate the creative juices, get by roadblocks or further plot lines.
Certainly looks like fun.
Yes, yes, yes 🙂 On top of everything else I’m saying about how useful collaging can be, it is fun.
Oh you’re preaching to the converted here. I love it! Enjoy and while away those hours!
I can imagine at creative design type like yourself, Jackie, busy with the scissors and paste – arranging and rearranging. It is good work for the soul.
Izzy would be overjoyed – all those therapeutic hours to be had! 🙂
Wouldn’t she just! Now that I’ve got all this collaging material easily accessible, I’m thinking I’ll put a few of my sticky plot holes to the test and see what a collage reveals. Good for whatever ails ya’
