"Unlike many things in modern society, there are no second chances collaging with glue. It takes preparation, concentration, and plenty of patience to get everything glued down just right."
NEW #scsdowntime with US artist Garrett Blad 🇺🇸👌🏻

"Glue sticks are for grade school kids. If you want to sell your art, develop strategies for gluing it with a serious adhesive so the work won’t pop off once it’s been sold."
Canadian collage artist Danielle Cole aka @girlsanddinosaurs tells it how it is in our last #scsdowntime for 2016! 🙀💯💥🤘🏻🔥
"love everything about collage. I love the creative process of telling a visual story. Every image that I pick has a story I want to tell."
