My art practice involves five major branches:
- Cleaning and Organizing
- Research and Learning
- Planning and Shopping
- Practice and Processing
I'm currently mostly doing #2 today: cleaning and organizing. My current mission is sifting through all the pretty paper projects I've made recently and sorting them into three piles: sell, collage fodder, do more.
If it looks great and I can imagine someone hanging it on their wall, it goes in the sell pile. 🙌 (This paper weaving is one of the tutorials from the Artful Holiday class, btw.)
COLLAGE FODDER is the stuff that isn't good enough to sell - either it didn't turn out well or it's simply not finished enough to be art that you hang on your wall.
But it's also not a piece of paper with two dots of paint or ink on it. I'm exaggerating a bit. But I do tend to mop up a spill and then forget about that 90% blank piece of paper. For me, collage fodder can be very decorative...
The collage fodder pile is the paper that will become the basis of the work I do for the next few months. ❤️
How do you sort your paper projects? I'd love to know!
Thanks for stopping by!
