"Primal, fearless, passionate"
How I did it: I'm a magazine hoarder so I hoard for a while then the other half of me (the neat-freak, take-no-prisoners cleaning gal) gets really pissy.
So...I went through these magazines (almost all of them) and tore out pages quickly, super quickly and only took the images I loved, LOVED at first glance. I don't judge, I just pull and PULL! It's a very gratifying feeling.
I thought I'd wait to make a nicely constructed collage as I have in the past, but tonight I was feeling fiesty so just started taping up the images on my most bare wall in my apartment. Like a mad woman.
Let me go back actually, because first I applied body paint to myself, then I took my stack of pulled images and threw them up into the air. Then I walked on them for awhile, surveying the beautiful chaos, THEN I picked up the ones that spoke to me, jumped out and begged to apart of this collage.
Then I taped them up like a mad woman. My wall is a gorgeous mess. A lot of black and whites, mostly fashion images, a few paintings and landscapes, lots of women with beautiful rear-ends, lots of provocative poses and surprisingly only one half nude (well...these are fashion magazines they're taken from after all...), lots of joyful faces and lots of serious ones as well.
This collage is definitely a rough draft. But I finally de-blanked that wall and I have something really inspiring to look at every. single. day.
Lessons & tips: Go crazy.
Just stark-raving mad.
Don't think, just pull, tear, rip, tug, shred...and don't judge, but especially don't think.
