The Material Whirl: 01.31.10 — Overscheduled

31 Jan


4″ x 5-1/2″, on white recycled cardstock

(Also known as “168 Hours” — the number of hours in a week.)



The Material Whirl: 01.30.10 — Chickarina

30 Jan


3-7/8″ x 5-3/8″, on a piece of greyish-tan cardboard.


This one had the same crinkly warped problem as 01.28.10, but fortunately didn’t look quite as ripped up after I remounted the pieces on stiffer cardboard.




The Material Whirl: 01.29.10 — A Cause For Celebration

4″ x 5-3/8″, on white recycled cardstock

I originally meant for this one to be vertical as shown, but some people seem to prefer the writing to be right side up.  That works too.


The Material Whirl: 01.28.10 — The Time of Your Life

28 Jan


4″ x 5-1/2″, on a piece of greyish-tan cardboard (blank on the back)

Despite the fact that others were assigned earlier dates, this was actually the first collage I made in the Material Whirl project, and it holds the record for going through the most permutations.  The first image is its current incarnation, turned sideways and steampunked at the suggestion of an online correspondent.  The second photo is version 2.0, created by ripping the original collage into four pieces after it became hopelessly warped, and regluing it onto a new backing.  The third photo is the original bland one-piece collage.
