Do you love paper a little too much? I adore the stuff. In any color, size, pattern; old and new, tattered and yellowing, crisp and fragrant; handmade, junk mail, envelopes, labels. My studio reflects this. How about yours? There are boxes of paper stored everywhere in my house.
Let's do some 5 minute collage and use up some of that stash.
I just keep a box of loose paper - intentionally disorganized because it is such fun to see what will happen. Dip in and grab what you want without thinking: look quickly and make instinctive choices. Then glue 'em down. Try to do this in 5 minutes. Set your timer! Yeah, not so easy, is it? Try it again.
You may sometimes feel, as I do, reluctant to just use up your paper. I try to keep in mind that there is plenty out there. When you sit down to play with art supplies, it doesn't have to Become Art. I usually regard this sort of play in the same way as you would a sandcastle: impermanent, unprecious. And you can cut these up and use them in your journal, returning them to collage fodder.
