return tested (salmon fishing in Iceland) by 


this was a piece of personal therapy this morning. read what you like into it!
I’ve wanted to do something with type for ages…feeling a new year need I went for these pieces of text almost aggressively…they pretty aggressively jumped out of the pages at me. I’m happier with the result than I thought I would be…results of the therapy? I had to do another one

    I love it Soxy. Don’t you just love word assemblage, it’s one of my favourite things to do. Regards the lines and glue blobs showing, I had that same dilemna with my little key collages. I did take some lines out, but there is a certain roughness to them,that shows process and I like that.Especially in a collage, because that’s the nature of the work..personal choice I suppose.Some willl prefer it polished, others will prefer it blobs and all :-)

  • thanks sticky. I haven’t done this before…it has been nagging at me and the “right” words seemed to jump out at me this morning!
    I might just remove a bit of the glue but I don’t really want to photoshop the lines
    I’m pleased with the fish (fish never fail!) and the bit of red that one adds, bit of red is always good too!

    yes!red is to me, a life force colour, and if I had to pick a favourite colour, red would be it.:-)

    Great fun, and I hope great “therapy” – for what, I can’t imagine, dear girl…
    Leave it as it. Sometimes perfection is creepy.

  • for what? I don’t know…i think i have given that away pretty easily! I think my choice of words and arrangement has said a fair bit….like shouting when you have caps lock stuck on….I’m trying for a softer more gentle approach at the moment but it isn’t working very well…need to find different magazines, I have exhausted english country life.
    yes apart from the odd glue blob making it stick to the scanner it will be remaining imperfect (still think it is creepy though, just a touch)

    If BOLD is meant to be right now, so be it. This works so well!

    Ah, my sister and I used to cut and glue print on everything! And this is so appealing. Keep the glue blobs, by all means. I must admit this and those of my sister’s are a lot more artistic than mine!

    I’ll email my sister the link. We had such fun. Do drop by and we can cut and paste for hours!

  • ok! one day we shall!!

  • I’m afraid the next one of these has stalled….just having a little break from it to see if something fresh will appear

    yep I’m liking this Soxy – and I’d keep the edges etc showing as that to me is the point (and beauty) of hand collaging. Looking forward to next one!

  • thanks John…the next one is sitting there waiting for the glue
