Our abstract collage made from old papers and books is titled, 'Choose Joy.' We all have a choice, don't we? This little work of art is a good reminder that only you can choose how you live your life.
Made on the cover of an old book, hand cut paper bits are assembled in an abstract graphic design with cheerful colors. This lovely piece can be displayed in a small easel (as shown) or framed and hung on the wall.
Inspired by stacks of discarded old books and papers with interesting text, images, graphics and history, old books are deconstructed, then bits and pieces are hand cut and sorted by color. I'll experiment with the design until I create an aesthetically pleasing arrangement. I'll let it rest for a few days, then return and adjust the design if needed. Oftentimes, ink, pencil and thread are added to provide additional interest and texture.
