Puttering

Gosh, a glance at my blog roll thingy shows many, many new and interesting posts to read. Both from yesterday and last night I guess??? Exciting. You all out there have been busy. As for me, I have been puttering with making a few collages. Here is an unglued proposed layout for an 8X8 collage on paper.

A pile of self-made stencils.

Papers for a second collage on 9X9 art paper. I will do more rearranging and selecting for this collage.

I also have a canvas book I am slowly assembling made from scraps of canvas I splashed paint on awhile back. I am now tearing the larger canvas into smaller sections. I want it to have a rough, uneven look but so far have no idea what the page decorations will be.

Its fun to have projects lined up. Even if you dont know yet what your going to make its fun to just go with it. Lovely colors.

I can see the creative wheels turning. I wonder if God felt this same way creating.

what a lotta fun. is 'puttering' the same as we call 'pottering' (just messing about doing bits and pieces?

Peter J. Crowley said...

marianne said...

Good to see you creating!

Ooo, rainy day fun! I love stuff in progress. Yours starts look very nice. I like your self made stencils and there's that luscious painted tissue paper that I had so much fun with.
I like the canvas book idea. I saw someone else do this on a blog somewhere, but can't remember where now. They turn out really nice. I'll be anxious to see how yours does.

I like your proposed collage, Suki. Nice.

The top collage layout looks architectural... perhaps a house?

I like your hand cut stencils.

yes, collage is about having lots of papers and moving them around and seeing what 'fits' next to what--
everything seems so coordinated

Mary said...

can't wait to see more collages and your book! i'm intrigued ;-)

Hi Suki, this looks great, lots of inspiration and ideas, and I really love the stencil pile too. And the canvas book you are putting together already looks interesting, very pure!
Have fun with your creations,
love
