Sketchbook Monday: Mushroom Forest

"Sketchbook: Mushroom Forest", recycled collage and acrylic paint.

My sketchbook spread this week started with dozens of old business cards collaged into my book. There are also a few old drawings and scraps of paper which have been sitting in my "to be collaged" pile for years. I liked this collage because I kept it looking messy. It's hard to do that, really. My hands love to refine things until they are smooth. But just like with a clay sculpture, oftentimes things look better if you don't smooth everything into oblivion and you leave a little of that natural texture behind.
