in my experimental group we were told to bring a half
sheet of watercolor paper and all sorts of papers , some
to be share with the group. we knew we were going to collage
but that's all. when we got to the meeting the project was
to start just gluing anything that suited us on the paper
without a plan or intention. since there are almost twenty of us,
we had a large pile of papers in the center of the room from which
we picked to add to the collage. we worked for over two hours
and for the first time that i can remember we didn't stop early for lunch.
after we ate, we were given the second half of the directions.
we were to turn the paper over and cut it up in pieces!
without looking at where were cutting.
i cut the pieces even smaller when i got home
to create act's for my international group.
they are all mailed. i like thinking of them
once being a part of a whole.
this turned out to be so much fun. try it sometime. in fact,
i am going to my studio now to start another one.
have a lovely weekend
