I did this week's collage using my favorite vintage documents, rubber stamps and scraps of handmade paper. Then, I felt it needed something. Since my sewing machine was out, I started randomly stitching on top of the collage. I still felt it needed something. I found 2 postage stamps that had black lines going through them that went perfectly with the stitching. Done.
This collage started with a vintage letter bought at an estate sale. The letter begins "My Dear Old Gal" which I thought went perfectly with the vintage photo. I also used vintage wallpaper, misc papers and a rubber stamp.
I'm a graphic designer who can't stop creating. I love creating on paper but I also have dabbled in pottery, sewing and jewelry making. I am a big collector of things-children's book illustrations, vintage hankies, pottery and bird items to name a few.
