I can’t get enough of the old photos, especially groups like this one. Smile, ladies!
Sometimes I will alter the colors digitally in collages, but here I used different colored tissue paper over the text pieces and placed the image of the group on top.
This collage is for an upcoming auction to be held on a bay cruise sponsored by Seatuck, a local nature/environmental center. A lot of different elements from my overflowing collection of postcards, maps, letters and books are used in this piece. I don’t think I’ll ever run out of collage material. Summer is here – enjoy!
Many of the books that I collect are children’s books and school activity books from the fifties and sixties. I love the illustrations and print of those old days. Here are some of those pages pieced together for a new collage.
Finally back at work on some new collages. This is a digital piece, all done on the computer, using much of the old books pages, letters and images I’ve been collecting and scanning. The flower basket is a black and white image that I hand colored. Hope you like it! Oh, and I’m having some blank notecards made with this design, as well as an 8″ x 10″ print ready for framing – they’ll be available for sale soon.
