Work and work material

It 's the first time I am making a mini collage book ordered by a friend for another friend.
Today's work
It will be a gift for a very strong and special woman. It's a lot of work, but it's great fun.
I will give my very best. Will finish it tomorrow and show it, as soon as the gift has arrived.

When you are doing collages, you can find this:
Poetry by accident
hidden poetry in a book. This is by Barbara Starrett (it's half German, half English).
I love such finds.

And new material was coming today.
A ledger from 1929.
Ledger from 1929
Great stuff! very helpful for making collages.
This is a book from 1882 about the spanish language.
Look at these pages! What a beauty!

Love this date stamp too, the nice words "Rec'd" and "Ans'd"...

  1. Love love the collage, now where do you find books and things like that?

  2. I am really enjoying your mini books and your attitude these past few posts. I think I have to go make a mini book myself!!

  3. It looks so inviting.... very very inspiring :)

  4. So fun and beautiful at the same time. Don't you just love paper? I'm cutting up books right now myself and find this so relaxing and enjoyable. *smiles* Norma
    p.s. looking forward to seeing the final result of your creative efforts.

  5. You have great paper--had to laugh at the cutouts you made for poetry-finding. I do the same, just way more messy! Great start on the mini-book. I bet it will be lovely.


So glad to hear from you!
