Welcome to 31 Days of Mini Collage and Commentary!

        Mini Collage #23, “Only Words”       cSylvia Robertson, 2017

This year, in the 31 days of October, I’ll be sharing my new adventure in collage making. Why? Because this adventure has proven far more revealing and rewarding than I ever anticipated.

I began exploring the craft of collaging a little over a year ago, just for fun. And fun it is! But it can turn out to be much more than that. I hope you’ll come along and see what I mean.

Below you will find links leading to individual posts as they appear on my blog during the month of October. Click on the links that interest you, or subscribe to my blog and receive an email notification when a new post has been published. Some posts will include an essay, true story, or anecdote illustrated by a mini collage. Others will simply show a new collage and a few words about it, usually including how it was made.

All the collages that appear in this series will be “mini” collages, which I’ll define and explain in Post #2. They are a super simple kind of collage that just about anybody can do, almost anywhere. But more on that in Post 2… 

Hope to “see” you there!
