Took me months to get up to speed. There are still three significant things I intended to do on the very first afternoon here. All undone because in the meantime very different things occurred and were done in response. that was just a 30 mile landscape shift. but wild. It made an enormous difference in how I synthesized information and prioritized my time. what i like about the new place is how it's made me see you differently and thus also gain a great deal of new insight into what your creative mojo is truly capable of. liking that a lot lot lot.

chaos and dis-order aspects of collage as a medium, I meant to say. "controlling" it by re-ordering it to suit your own inner landscape.

they were meant to evoke the chaos and dis-order aspects of chaos. If you go through and look at the prompts again after some distance from the process you'll see how there are pairs and trios of prompts that all serve the same learning and self-exploration arc. Not all arcs are going to resonate. That, too, becomes significant learning: what makes sense to you and what does not?

I actually considered making that a prompt but in today's world thought better of it. laughing.

Having just read Liz's comment on the previous post I've decided to let myself have a couple of R & R days. Have just unscheduled the last few prompts of our challenge so it doesn't conclude with radio silence on my end. See you Thursday or Friday morning ... Continue reading

could help notice when you were drawing back a piece you'd overlayered it was always most as if you were turning pages. Of a brilliantly illuminated manuscript. you've always struck me as somebody who wouldn't tolerate so much as a drawer-pull not being one-hundred per cent your aesthetic, no substitutions sought or accepted. seeing you adapt to this place - accepting Ordinary as a backdrop - has been very enlightening in that regard.

My ultimate idea for this prompt might be awesome but I have a very stiff neck. It's fine for a lot of things but movin' and groovin' in collage-brain flow isn't one of them. Stretching in gentle increments and that includes coming up with something doable that speaks to this... Continue reading

That beauty of a tree has got a very robust presence. All these trees do. So much silt nourishment and also i think they just all dig each other's company tremendously. You can feel it even just standing there on the bridge.

Prompt #26 Consider aspects of working style you've grown to admire about each of your virtual collage table-mates See what you can come up with that pays tribute/serves as an active homage to as many admired aspects as you can manage. Continue reading

Here are the Just Because pieces that gathered for me. But. I couldn't get into the groove immediately like I've been doing for a lot of this challenge because the cumulative clutter explosion on my workspace looked like this: and in the process of pulling it together to look like...

Prompt #25 (otherwise known as the just-because prompt) Select a few pieces that keep catching your eye. bonus points if you choose some things you've been mentally pairing off and on throughout the challenge but they've had no direct or even tangential relationship to the prompt of the day. do...

it's hard to know about coyotes, really. That's why they're able to survive so brilliantly in the ongoing face of extermination. I mean that quite pragmatically no mumbo jumbo. wait until later in the season when the pups join in howl-groups right at the end... new beasties a'brewin'!

When I woke up this morning I knew the biggest challenge I could set myself was to do this prompt with human examples rather than personifying myself as flowers and birds. Thought: I probably don't even have enough pictures of relevant humans to find the images I need. Subsequently came... Continue reading

Prompt #24: Above/Below/Within Tell a 3 piece story about who you are in relation to the above sacred directions it's okay if you want to use background paper or create borders for your narrative/divisions between the directions but stick to telling the prompt's story with three elements.

oh grace. am so happy for you. it's DONE, you're YOU and there's no reason to contract unless it's for another kind of reason you've chosen for strong Purpose. am so so happy. also yes to what you said. it IS just like the cloth. and you found that from tiny things and Joanne's teabags. it's going to be like when jude first realized she was collaging with cloth - you will bring this to that (cloth) same as she did. But you will also bring cloth to this. The skills/understandings/intuitions you hold and how they might translate. back and forth more than likely ...
please don't either of you be cavalier about that. Jim was and lost quite a bit of time to the Lyme gremlins. best pro-tip - Wear all pants tucked INTO socks and take extra care when peeling them (socks) off.

Today I zoomed back into the pages of my bumblebee allegory version of real life on our property. Although this looks like a bush it's actually an Eastern Fringe Tree. I got her for a paltry sum a few years back just past the point when she'd flowered and shed... Continue reading

remember when you began 'cloth collaging' in earnest and I would often mention stuff looked like it had already/always been there? Seems that way seeing you and the tiny pot. absolutely made for each other in every way! also am hugely impressed and a tad envious of how snugly these stone walls you must leave alone have settled the stones INTO each other instead of scattering them every which way. You must not have as many underground tremors there. That's all you're allowed to call them officially here. not small earthquakes. underground tremors.

Today's prompt was supposed to be the third replacement I created during the first week of the challenge. It was: Maybe it's time to address our political hellscape head-on which seems unpleasantly redundant. The adjusted prompt should be enjoyable group-wide. Prompt #23: Revisit the tree prompt Create a companion because... Continue reading

Dear Garden indeed. Setting it atop Julia Caprara's embroidery was a lovely choice that really makes the energy vibrate with both love and devotion.
