Collage Meditation Morning Practices
Creating an art practice is something we all want to do when we become an artist. Well maybe not all but most interested creatives do.
How does that practice start?
What do you have to do to begin?
Will I be able to keep it up?
A good way I've experienced it is to take class and commit yourself to it. Or if your the dedicated types, you can give yourself an assignment and stick with it. Though as we get older and are not in a school setting it's hard to stick to it, right? Life and things sway us away. Morning time is a great time to put into practice a little something to help you center, clear and start your day calmly with creative intentional prayers. I also like to do morning pages and Yes I do wake up early so I'm able to do the practice.
We all aren't like that but we have hopes and dreams of doing something like it some days. Right?
I started tons of sketchbooks in great hopes of completing the whole things and seeing sketch after sketch. Though I draw and work with many other mediums, paper was something that I clung to the most. I would believe it was the sound of tearing paper and the cutting with scissor that held my connection the most. Then gluing it down with a glue stick and having fingers sticking to everything...Oh I do love a good mess.
I would like to share this practice with you and highlight some design aspects that when completed could spring into larger works away from the sketchbook.
The practice of naming ones self in other ancient culture is normal. I think and secretly call myself a paper alchemist. Can you do that give yourself a name? Well, the love of paper has had me making my own from plants in my environment to dying with natural elements and digging out of my recycling bin to alter, sew, sand and work a variety of art material on the surface.
But I have always used Magazines as a go to in my sketchbook and quick meditations like we will be doing here for the next couple of weeks together.
