When ever I am about to start a new collage project, I collect, collect, collect. I am about ready to start collage work for the Sketchbook Project (see the link below). So I am collecting images, roots, herbs, vellum, wax paper, old empherma, old vintage naturalists prints, an assortment of papers and treasures that will make up this little sketchbook. It helps me to see possibilities, look at things in new ways, and how things look together. Some might say I am making a big pile of a mess, others can see the creativity inherent in a pile. What do you see, and how do you begin a project?
