I like to tear interesting headlines and pictures from magazines and catalogs. There's really none safe from my tearing hands, especially when I'm on an airplane. I keep an accordion file folder in my travel art bag for the torn bits. Today I decided it would be fun to glue these headlines and pictures randomly in my various art journals. They make great "middles" and will spark future entries.
I like torn edges much better than clean and neat from sciss.
I mix images. The theme is simply what I find interesting.
