collage, but not in a logical sort of way

❝If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, 
I'll bet they'd live a lot differently.❞

When I started art journaling about 11 years ago, collage was something that I found intriguing, but I couldn't grasp the "why" of collage. What made a collage so visually appealing? So I tried to figure it out. And really, I just created a lot of freaking collages. Thousands. I couldn't even guesstimate, and it doesn't matter really. It's just to say that I create collage in an intuitive way, but not in a logical brain sort of way. Maybe that's why it feels like a very good form of mental escape.

ICAD #37.  Collage... And while it technically includes a staple, it's not officially a one staple collage because there’s adhesive!

ICAD #38.  Collage... And while it technically includes a staple, it's not officially a one staple collage because there’s adhesive! I like the center portion a lot, but that paint chip strip is not right somehow.

ICAD #39. Acrylics, stitching, collage. 

Landscapes 39-42 in ink, https://daisyyellowart.com

ICAD #40-43 are landscapes -- abstract, of course -- ink drawn and painted on 3x5" index cards, then cut them up into vertical pieces, mixed & matched the lines --  and glued the back together with another index card as a base of operations. ⤵️⤵️⤵️
