Christa Desir and Amy L. Sonnichsen are co-hosting the My So-Called Teenage Life Blog Hop!
Lucky for all of us I did not use this blogfest as an opportunity to delve into THE BOX. You know, the one at THE BACK of the closet that is full of journals.
THE BOX is so far back in the closet it would have taken half a day to find it. And if I'd opened THE BOX, it would have taken the other half of the day just to get through it.
Instead, I grabbed a sketchbook from the mid 1990s off my shelf. Periodically I would take old diaries and journals and cut them up to use within collages I made in sketchbooks. That made it less easy to cringe over my own painful entries. I would use my journals, drawings, photos from magazines, etc
So, here are some of those collages... for your entertainment.
Drawings by Degas, a dragonfly from me, photos, MLK, and a report from when my roommate was attacked in college.
A project from photography class.
Diary pages and bugs and drawings.
I still love this one. A cut out of the emaciated model from a victoria's secret catalog surrounded by beetles. I've written in "This is not healthy." Now I just know that's not healthy, but then I had to keep reminding myself.
