My Advent collages have taken a very specific direction. (I’ll get to that in a minute.)
I created rules for the collages, like I often do in my creative endeavors, the primary rule: making the collages from certain papers. For example, choosing four or five different papers and only using whatever I can cut from those papers in the collage. Some of those papers had text, some did not. The only way I decided to break that rule was if I ate a fortune cookie or had some Yogi tea. THEN, I would include those words of wisdom, if appropriate.
What I discovered, and the turn that they are taking, is that I want them to have text. They are becoming mantra cards, they are taking the place of the writing I do in the morning, which is all about text and positive intentions, so why shouldn’t I carry this same practice through to these Advent Collages.
So here are days six, seven, eight and nine. I hope you enjoy them! I’m back to posting every day again, you’ll see Day 10 before midnight EST tomorrow, maybe sooner.
