Every morning, when I first enter my studio, I create a "warm-up" collage. I've been doing this for years as a way to jumpstart my creativity each day. I use whatever materials are on hand (paper scraps, cloth, junk mail, etc.), and I spend about 15 minutes on it from start to finish. I have been using recycled cereal and cracker boxes as the base layer, but now I am actually running out of boxes. I never thought I would run out of recycled materials!
