Here is when the real fun comes!
Mixing textures, surfaces, patterns and materials you can loose yourself for hours.
What I find interesting is the dynamism coming out of a mixed media piece of art.
This is why I keep bits and pieces of paper, fabric, leaves and other tresures that can be used in a picture.
Every piece of paper I use has a story, an adventure and a destination behind.
When I travel I always keep my eyes open and collect potential material for collages. A bus ticket, a piece of newspaper, a label written in a different alphabet are then going to be cut in shapes and glued in a different context.
