52 Weeks of Collage Part 2 Week 33

Last weekend I went yard sale-ing  and found a really dilapidated copy of Black Beauty dating from 1897. Since the whole thing was already in pieces (I hate to cut up a perfectly good book), I didn't mind using it for collaging. This collage uses the back cover, the spine, one of the illustration pages and some rubber stamps.

52 Weeks of Collage Part 2 Week 32

My collage this week is done on canvas. For the background, I used the insides of various business envelopes with security patterns. I layered on  some vintage postage stamps, some labels and part of an old letter. It's finished off with red and white string and some postage-related rubber stamps.

52 Weeks of Collage Part 2 Week 31

I was going through some of my ephemera and two items jumped out at me - a bingo game card and  a mini playing card with a horse and horseshoe. I immediately thought of Lucky 7. I added some stars, the number 7 and handmade paper.
