The therapy of magazine cutting

I collected articles about Travels when I was in school ~ I still love traveling

I collected articles & pasted them in my diary when I started work ~ I need motivational/encouragement

And now, I collect images (ephemera) for journal play ~ I need retreat section

1) Find inspiration throughout the process
2) Calm my mind & nourish my soul (sometimes hurt my back)
3) To save more room (ooh...my messy art room)
4) Revived those pretty images under the huge stacks.
5) Saving those images for journal, the images speak to me.

I never thought of it as therapeutic but I suppose it is! I love to organise my cuttings in different envelopes too! What type do you want to swap? I bought a postcard to send you from Dublin ireland! I could send with paper and leave it blank if you prefer? x

Hi, Lay Hoon! I love cutting up old magazines for collage images, too. My stack has been piling up lately ... maybe I can find some time soon! Thanks for the inspiration! :-)
