I recently had a significant birthday and leading up to it, I spent some time amongst my old photos and certain ones evoked memories that felt just right to capture in collage.
The 'me' in this photo captured a very free feeling and I decided an altered me from a Then, along with my totems and symbols, was also perfect for being in this Now.
I collect images all the time. Wandering through Pinterest is a great bazaar of options and you can save them to your "Boards' and never worry about space or cost. And there are days I just wander through my image files and see what 'pops' for me that day. I've done a series of collages I call Anonymous Content, because they don't express an internal theme, but rather, emerge just from images I have on hand. This collage began that way with the image of the drawing of a face, but once I came upon the Broken Crayons text, that started to orient the piece and so Anonymous became Broken Crayons. And some days I need to remember Broken Crayons Still Color.
