ten minute collage
I read about an artist who does a ten minute collage each day--she recommends it as almost a meditation process. She finds images and words in magazines or newspapers that catch her attention or appeal to her in some way (I like the newspaper--newsprint makes great collage paper) and creates a collage. She recommends--and the ten minute time period necessitates--that you don't think too hard or overwork. Shut off the left brain and let the right brain have a little fun. I've been trying to do one occasionally and it is fun--and interesting to see what emerges.
