|Collage week 18|
Tuesday, May 6, 2014
My collage for week 18 is a few days late but here it is. It started with a print of my ink bottle on a vintage postcard. I then mounted the card on a book cover from my stash of mid century Reader's Digest books. Add some hand made paper, a bit of music and a butterfly and the collage is done. I did a collage using the same ink bottle last year. You can see it here.
I normally don't like to cut up perfectly good books, but many of the older Reader's Digest books that I have are cracked along the spine and starting to fall apart so I don't feel quite so badly. The cover's on the older books have wonderful patterns - I keep some for collaging and the rest just to keep.
