Old prints = Collage bits!

Awhile back I was making prints of some of my botanical drawings, and my poor printer had a *really* bad day. For some reason it decided to print everything within a giant square of gray, which was super disappointing. I fixed it (thankfully) and went on to make a run of perfect prints — but was sad that the others were wasted.

Until, I remembered I love to collage.

I spent the whole day cutting the prints out and arranging/rearranging them on various surfaces. I wove the leaves together, made patterns, stacked them other under tracing paper, and just generally explored. I haven’t set a final layout just yet, I’m still having too much fun playing. A final composition is my goal for the weekend :)
