I am well into my first assignment in Winter Quarter of my Fiber Arts Certificate and this project is a biggie! We have to create 50 collages, yes, that's right, 50, based on a single theme and then 2 nicer collages as a finished diptych. And we only have 2 weeks. Yikes, this is like real school!
I've said this before and I will say it again. I am not really a collage person. The self portrait I did last quarter was one of the only collages I have created in years and years. So this is hard for me. The instructor did say that to think of the 50 more like sketches so I am using it more to just experiment with the paper.
I am also trying not to use a lot of magazines so that is making it hard as well. But I am hunkering down in the downstairs rec room (My new studio looks to have a water leak which is another story and I can't move into it just yet.) and listening to the radio and enjoying myself. I made it past 30 which felt like a big obstacle and am actually starting to enjoy what I have been coming up with.
