Someone once asked me how I created my collages.
While I would have loved to wax poetic on the creative process (which changes daily in my view), the honest answer is that some of my favorite collage were total accidents.
I could tell you about the time my work table collapsed in the middle of a design deadline….my nerves were completely frayed….in a total freak out now that days of work had just piled into one nasty mess on my floor…when I looked over and saw that the very design I had been struggling with had just assembled itself in the most wonderful way.
Well a similar thing happened recently. In an effort to clean up my forever untidy studio, I had some elements on a table that holds my dried ferns and leaves under it’s glass top.
Since I always start with switchplate designs, once the collage was finished, I had a wonderful new fern design for my client and for Full Circle Studio.
But wait, there’s more.
Now that I am doing a line of specialty pillows, a fabric from this collage was also made in to a large, square, cotton, delicious pillow!
And all this from a mess in my studio!
