#100 in the Java Series
Virginia A. Spiegel
Wow! I never expected to see 100 of these 6″ square found-paper collages using a coffee cup motif.
I started creating these one-a-week collages as part of the Facebook group, Junk Mail Collective. I share them weekly there, but the easiest way to see all 100 is to visit the three Java Series webpages starting here on my website.
My tagline for this series is Making a collage every week from found paper is a challenge;
making a collage a week using the same motif is inspiration.
Here is a little essay about things I’ve learned by doing this small artwork series.
This isn’t my first foray into a long-term collage series. In 2004 and 2006 I completed a self-directed 365 Days of Art by making a collage a day. You can read more about those fun projects and how it influenced my textile art here.
In 2013 I turned one of the 365 Days of Art books into the biggest collage I ever plan on creating. See below and a blog post here about that fun project.
