Collage can be performed on any number of surfaces. Since I collect small boxes, I like to decorate my own as works of art. I use an adhesive to attach papers and other relatively flat elements to a the boxes. Decorative papers, magazine and catalog images, maps, wallpaper samples, ribbons, stamps, charms, wire, beads and the like are the most common elements I use. Some rubber stamping or embossing may be included as well. Here are some works I have created.
