Collage Scrap Exchange

As someone who started a "paper collection" in the 3rd grade, you can say I've been a fan of paper products for awhile. I have boxes of old maps and collage materials that have been laying around unused for far too long. Now that I'm trying to recommit some time to creative endeavors, I was thrilled to hear about the Collage Scrap Exchange. Put on by Papirmass and Brown Paper Bag, when you sign up you get matched up with another person (domestic or international) and mail each other collage material. Then you make a piece using the other person's materials. The theme is new landscapes and I couldn't be more excited! I requested an international partner so it'll as least be worth it to get some fun mail:)

Lola Donaghue

Just saw the work of Lola Donoghue via The Jealous Curator. I think I may add a print of hers to my wish list for Christmas! As someone who is timid when it comes to color, I think her work would look great in our house.
