Six New Collages


One morning in February I woke up and didn’t want to write. I didn’t want to make jewelry or hats. I certainly didn’t want to clean my van or the room I was staying in. All I wanted to do was sit in front of bad TV and make collages. So I did.

I’ve posted photos of these six new collages on my Facebook page, but for anyone who missed them there (or who wants to look at them all at once, all in one place), today I’m posting photos of the six new collages here.



This collage is the first I made of the new batch. Last time I acquired “women’s” magazines, I cut out words and phrases and quotes I liked after I read the articles.



This one has a quote from India Arie on it.


I love the shades of blue I used on this one.


Can you see what this collage and the one with the quote by India Arie have in common? I only saw the commonality when I was putting together this post.



For this collage, I tried to use images that would evoke adventures.



All is well…that sums it up…

All of these collages are 4″ X 6″ or smaller. All are paper (cut from magazines) on mat board. All are for sale.

I took all the photos in this post.

About Blaize Sun

I live in my van, which makes me a rubber tramp. I like to see places I've never seen before, and I like to visit the places I love again and again. I like to play with color. I make collages and hemp jewelry and cheerful winter hats. I take photographs and (sometimes, not in a long time) write poetry. All of those things make me an artist. Although I like to spread joy and to make people laugh, my wit can be sharp. I try to stay positives in all situations, to find the goodness in all people. But I often feel compelled to point out bullshit when I smell it. I like to have fun, to dance, to eat yummy food, to sit by a fire and share stories. I want to know what people hold dear and important, not just make surface small talk. This blog is a way for me to share stories. This blog is made up of my stories, rants, and observations, as well as my photographs.

    • Well, while they both may have a turquoise nugget, that’s not what I saw. (I would not be surprised if all of these collages have a turquoise nugget. Turquoise nuggets are great space fillers.) The similarity I noticed was quite large (and orange).

      Thanks for reading and commenting, Maggie, and I appreciate your positive comment on my work.

    • Thank you for your comments, Brent. None of the collages are more than 4″ x 6″. (Did I already mention that in the post.) I like working on a small scale, which is less intimidating to me than something big.

  1. love your collages, the colors and the messages. 4×6 inch is a good size for an RV. Did you post the prices? thanks! Lelia

    p.s. I am sharing one by one to my artist, naturalist, writer friends in Texas! one was so jazzed by the Desert Botanical post, she said she has wanted to visit there forever!

    • Leila, thanks for sharing my blog posts. I appreciate the exposure.

      I did not post the prices for the collages, but I would take $20 for any one of them. That includes postage. Yes, I think they are a good size for RV/van living. If you are interested in one (or more) please PM me on Facebook, and we can discuss payment methods and your mailing address.

      Thank you for reading!

  2. Hi Blaize! As always, I look forward to the goodies from you that appear in my inbox each morning. I’d like to purchase the adventure collage. Thank you! Sassy

    • Hi Sassy!

      Thank you so much! I would love for you to have the adventure collage. I am asking $20 for it, which includes postage. I will send you an email about payment methods and shipping dates and all that fun stuff.

I'd love to know what you think. Please leave a reply
