Whirl around Paris with Belle (Day 19 collage)

Collage I created from a Toulouse-Lautrec postcard, scraps from a magazine, ripped pages from an old french dictionary, rick-rack & feathers. Visiting Paris in October was inspiring and I see how it is influencing the themes of my collage work.

Assemblage Day 16

Decoupaged wood transformed into an assemblage — wine glass, moss, a porcelain doll head, paint + other ephemera. My daily goal of posting of posting a project on social media is being realized as I am making the time to create everyday. Not easy with the amount of design work I have currently, but I have made this personal project a high priority.

New collage for my 2014 Day 10 project :: blocks of wood covered with papers I purchased in Paris, scraps and other little bits of ephemera. Fun addition to my desk; they keep me inspired.

Today’s project posted is a departure from the usual flat collages I have been doing. To brighten this January Monday, I post a collaboration between my husband and I: a small Parisian-inspired shadowbox. I had purchased two finials and when I opened the packaging, I realized the cardboard box it came in was an interesting shape. It resembled a stage. So with imagination, paper dancing girls, a horse, mirrors and a little bit of collage with french dictionary pages, and some lights, which Conrad enthusiastically contributed, we completed this small, rosy-glowing theatre. Peek inside; we hope it brightens + warms your day!

After spending occasional afternoons creating little collages last year and randomly posting them to social media, I decided 2014 would be the year I attempt to create a collage/assemblage a day. It is an ambitious effort as my days tend to fill with other priorities, but I thought it would be fun to at least see how many collages I can create. The goal is to create something quick + fun; not to be labored. These fast exercises actually keep me sane when I am in the midst of massive deadlines with my design business and assist me with at creative solutions on a graphic project. I believe in play, the random joy a little collage can be + an unexpected solution. There are no mistakes here. Here’s to the beginning of a creative 2014.
