Collage from a Reader





I love to get e-mail feedback from people who have purchased Collage Journeys. Lately I've been asking readers to send me pictures of their own collages. These just came in this morning from Edwina Kinch. "Sunflower" and "Emerald" are based on my "Color Collage" project. The red collage ("Collage 1") is made from discarded artwork that Edwina cut and tore into pieces and reassembled. I'm a big fan of recycling artwork this way. I love Edwina's use of texture and her stitching and beading. Fun! Thanks, Edwina!

  1. I have just bought your book 'Collage Journeys' and it is fueling my soul after a terribly frustrating non-art day. It is superb, and now I have discovered your blog, I will be following it avidly.

    I love collage in paper and fabric and make my own little journals, but your techniques will inspire me to experiment even more. Thankyou (Ann from UK)

  2. P.S. The book only arrived today and I am already contemplating a collage-a-day journal. I will see what transpires. How do I post photos to you, please (if you would like to see them)? Would email be best? Ann (from UK)

  5. I have moved forward with the first chapter in your lovely book, started a collage and moved into experimental mode; both collages posted on my journaling blog, plus notes on progress. I don't know how or where to send you photos, but you can see the results on my posts.

    Fabulous book; just what I had been seeking to spur me on. Tankyou

  6. Just finished your great book, Jane! Really liked your idea of playing around making backgrounds; I realize a lot of my paintings are really backgrounds, awaiting more. My last blog post (Feb. 16) mentioned your book. I want to try the acrylic skins idea, too, as toner copies with gel medium have such mixed results.
