rice krispies and sticky fingers

Things I've done today: bumming around. The gray weather is making me dreary and blah and d00000d, I just want to ride my bike and stare at cute, old couples! IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR?!?!

Side note: I've recently been obsessed with making collages. Well, by "recently," I mean today. And by "obsessed," I mean three. Enjoy?

(collages by me)

It's fun to snip out pictures to make new pictures. I'm such a hoarder when it comes to magazines - I basically worship them all and perform rituals and tribal dances before chopping them up. Okay, not actually... but only because I don't chop my own up. All these photos were snipped from National Geographics I stole from my school that were already fallin' apart. Boo yeah. It's a legitimately fun process. Easy, mindless, and it at least makes me feel like I'm being "creative." Yay for manipulating my mind?

But, really. It's so much fun encountering new creative endeavors. It keeps me sane and happy and bubbly and at ease. I'm excited to print of my own pictures and slash and dash and snip and clip 'em up. Werrrrrd.

What do you do to get out your creative bubbles?

Haha me too. I never cut up my magazines. I like keeping them on a shelf and starring at them. They are verrrry pretty. Haha.

Awesome collages. I feel like I should do this. It seems like a good use of time. Now that I'm done school I can waste away time doing things like collages and regularly updating my blog.

I had a phase of collage this and collage that. I think you may have just spurted the phase once again. these blow my mind to epic proportions. masterfully done, related and unrelated objects alike.
