Blog Logo, Collage


Awareness of the outside world. @Ada_Palmer posts pretty pictures on Twitter under #Something Beautiful.


Process Notes. Idea for a collage came from Artistcoveries: “A Fearless Attitude of Play”. Although, these are closer to what the post considers a collection than “creating images from other images.” In other words, it’s not art, but it was interesting.

True art takes time. I did not take time.

Things I did. I cut out a bunch of letters. I laid down lines of double-sided tape. I plonked letters down. No backsies. Done. Moving on.

Things I did not do. Did not sketch out the size and shape of the letter profiles. (Kinda ended up wedged together didn’t they?) Did not do a preliminary positioning of the cut-outs to determine the optimal blend of shapes and colors. (The big letters are more of a pile than images in their own right.) I did not take the time to hunt down my stamp tongs to help place the letters. (I went with a plastic card, fingers, and best guess.)

Impatient? Moi?


I hereby decree this to be an experiment. Give it a try. See what turns up. Do a better, longer, more elaborate version if the process turns out to be amusing. Proof of concept, if you will. For the idea of turning the negative “impatient” into the positive “experimental,” I thank Paper Ponderings: Experimenting.

Hat tip to the Valley Vet catalogue and to US Eventing & Bee Culture magazines. Among others. Cut out way more letters than I used. Although, note to self, ending up needed more little letters than I was expecting in order to fill small spaces.

  1. Even if it’s not “an image created from other images”, it’s still very much ART. It’s your art. It’s personal.It represents who you are. I like it. It’s bright and colorful, and I feel a real “attitude” in what you’ve created. 🙂

  2. Art. You are too kind. I guessif you gave the same pile of letters to 8 people, you would get 8 different results.
