New Collages

I haven't done any collages for awhile but I had purchased a stack of vintage bingo cards and I got inspired. (The bingo cards are large and measure 5.5" x 7.25".)

This collage was made using a butterfly printed on an old letter, rubber stamps, hand made papers and a part of an old (bus?) ticket.

This collage was made using a piece of a label from sandalwood soap purchased in Chinatown, hand made eraser stamps, hand made paper, a Russian (postal?) stamp, and letterpress scraps known as make-ready. Make-ready is the paper that you test print on to get the color and positioning correct-some pieces are used over and over and build up interesting textures and patterns.

This last collage is made using rubber stamps, letterpress make-ready, hand made papers, vintage wallpaper and postage stamps. I had so much fun doing these that I think I'll have to get more bingo cards!

Those are great cards -- no wonder you were inspired! The collages turned out really fun. :-)
