White Out

I'm making progress in my New Year's creative workout challenge: Prompt #2 of The Collage Workbook: "make a collage using various shades of white only."

As I mentioned in a previous post, I actually do this all the time and really enjoy it. Many of my collages begin with cuts and tears from the blank edges of magazines and books that are various shades of white and beige—I use them as a background to build upon.

For this prompt I decided to do a few different collages: two completely different than my usual work, but first, a reprise of the prose series I did a couple of years ago. I love the obsessive, zen-like process of making these type of collages.

As is my way, for the first collage I gave myself an added restriction: the small slices that make up this collage are from just 2 pages of Interview magazine and are a black and white photograph of Kate Moss. And if you know me, you know that Kate is often my muse.

Here are some process shots for "fresh," and check out the other two collages I made for "White Out" over at The Collage Workbook photo album on my Facebook page.
