4” x 4” collage Swap (4) due April 24: Roads & Paths

-creative swaps 2010: swap #2 
A 4” x 4” collage Swap (4) 

What: a mixed media 4x4 Collage Swap using fabric, paper, digital, or a combination. 
Create four 4 inch x 4 inch collages - all identical or all different and receive (4) 4x4’s in return.

Theme: Roads + paths: All roads lead home? The road less traveled? Hmmmm. This theme can be taken literally using images of roads and paths -- or not. When creating for this swap you can work from ideas like: The roads I’ve traveled, the paths I have taken, the road I am traveling at this moment or the paths and roads I would like to take. You should take this theme and run with it (down the road!!) You may prefer to work on a literal level with images of roads and paths, ones you have actually traveled or perhaps ones you have not, that appeal to you. Alternately, you may take this theme and create your collages more figuratively based on the “roads” or “paths” you are taking, have taken or want to take. In this respect think: life choices, career choices, relationship choices, how you spend your day kind of choices, friend choices, things like that. You may even combine literal images of roads + paths with something more figurative. I have some images to inspire you that you can use for the swap, if you like: roads + paths

Any Medium: Paint, paper, magazine pages, photos, digital, fabric, sewing, water color, drawing . . . you choose the medium(s) you want to work with.
