As I can only sit at my desk for short periods, I choose images and words that 'speak' to me from my enormous stash and gather them on the desk, then I take a break on the sofa with my feet up (they swell if they're down too long). After a wee rest, I sort through the pieces and arrange them on the page, then I take a break... Finally, I return to the desk, rearrange anything that doesn't 'feel' right, and glue everything down.
It's a process, and that's where the magic happens, I think - the stepping away, the returning, the sifting, the sorting, the final pulling it all together... (Yesterday's collage was inspired by an image in Tracie Nichol's newsletter, and clearly something shifted... oh my!)
But here's today's (Collage no. 4 - the crows woke me at 4.30am with their cawing, but I found peace making this...)
I think you can read most of the words, but here's the two quotes I'd typed out a while ago, which seemed appropriately nurturing :)
We are shaped and fashioned by what we love.
Just to be is a blessing.
Just to live is holy.
And here's the two pages in close-up...
I find it interesting the left-hand page is quite colorful and bright, while the right-hand one is almost monochrome... I felt yesterday's collage was something of a breakthrough, so finding the We'Moon diary page of that word was quite perfect :)
You can find the other three collages under the tab 'A Collage a Day' at the top of the blog.
