Getting Ready to Play
Even as an adult, I continue to purchase "back to school" supplies. Who can resist the penny pencils, fifty-cent composition books and bargain-basement loose-leaf paper? I love to look through the folders and notebooks to see what the "cool kids" will be buying. I always come across some item I can’t walk away from, knowing it will make my life easier or at least more fun.
This chapter (Chapter 1) is all about collecting and organizing your supplies. The items mentioned here are the essential raw materials you’ll need for your Collage Toy Box. Each time you create a collage or mixed-media piece of art, you’ll need an adhesive, a support, surface-enriching media and collage resources. In Chapter Two, I’ll show you how to take some of these raw materials and turn them into Collage Elements —fun items to have on hand to help preserve the images you love the most so you can use them in multiple ways.
So let’s jump in to the sandbox, dig around and see what we come up with!
