weekly welcome :: issue #2 – the whole is greater…

audrey smith - mini collages
mini original collages by audrey smith

collage is:

  • where art meets craft.
  • the ultimate in recycling.
  • simple – no special supplies needed.
  • a safety net for our memories.

it’s no wonder so many of us are mesmerized by collage. cut, arrange, glue, repeat.

for this week’s issue, i not only sought out great collage artists but i tried to understand why we collage, what it represents in our lives, and how we can use collage to further express ourselves craft & art.
