Bits & Bobs & Collage

I love collage almost as much as I love colour.

So naturally, colourful collaging is my dream.

For a while, I wouldn’t let my flatmate or work colleagues throw away a single magazine, newspaper, flyer, pizza delivery menu, nail parlour cost sheet… (you get the gist) until I had flicked through the pages & ripped out bits & bobs that took my attention.

Funny headlines & quotes as well as pictures (often owls) & interesting photos.
I keep them categorized into brimming folders & boxes which I bring out whenever I find a collaging moment.

Aka A LOT

Making people mix tapes with collaged covers is a particular favourite. Despite the fact that CD’s seem to be so two-thousand-and-late I still do this & have a CD player in my living room.

I’ve been collaging books which I use as a diary for the last few years. The diary is my life line for keeping on top of a busy life, so having it colourful & lovely is most important to me.
As it is always with me, there is no surprise that it is full of drawings of nudes. Here a few pages from my recent diary and you can see more here from the last.

You can also have a bit of a insight into what I get up to in life, oh isn’t THAT a treat.
