I have a stash of old Reader's Digest book covers and I used one for the base of this week's collage. I rubber stamped leaves and type and then added a strip from a vintage document. On a separate card, I stamped a pattern and then layered some hand made paper. I added a bird cut from a vintage print (the bird is a copy - scanned into my computer and printed as needed to keep the original) and glued the smaller card onto the book cover.

Everything is coming up roses! I just purchased a pack of vintage wallpaper from Etsy shop reginasstudio (the ledger paper in the background is from the same shop) and was inspired by a piece with a large pink rose. I whitewashed one of my wood panels and then rubber stamped a pattern with gold ink. The wallpaper, a few scraps of Japanese washi paper and a fragment of a vintage document complete the collage.

Spring has suddenly arrived - it went from cold (by Southern California standards) and rainy to sunny and 80 in just a few days. This week is a little bird collage on wood panel - robin red breast to welcome spring. Vintage music, documents and wallpaper plus rubber stamps were used to create the collage.

This week, I used another wood panel and mounted vintage music for the background. I layered on a paper doily and gold star paper. I printed a bird image on a vintage French document and hand colored the bird. The blue-gray handmade paper was printed in gold with a rubber stamp.

This week, I did a collage on a tiny canvas. This size gives me a chance to use up some of my scraps. I stamped the background with one of my hand cut eraser stamps. Some scraps of hand made papers and a Japanese stamp finish it off.

Totally forgot to post last night... My collage for week 7 is done on a wood panel. I used vintage Japanese paper as a base and layered on a letterpressed fan of my own design, hand made washi papers and an image of a geisha from an old postcard. I scanned and re-printed the geisha image onto rice paper so the calligraphy layer shows through for a nice background pattern.

More butterflies this week. I used all different documents to collage a background and on top, layered a butterfly, hand made Japanese papers and some rubber stamping.
