Collaborative traditional cut and paste (scissors and glue ) collage blog with a weekly set theme.

This is only the 3rd abstract collage I have ever created. Pasted to a book cover are two vertical strips of brown construction paper, an ink inscription on an endpaper from a vintage book about Chilie, and bits of two different deconstructed abstract paintings. I have acknowledged the artist of the main work I tore up and his name appears on the bottom (both left and right) of the collage "Theodoros Stamos". Though it appears random, abstract collages take me a long time to formulate. My figural collages come to me much easier.
