Last week HB and I were at the library and I slipped into the book store to have a quick look around. I just can't help myself! I'm like a drug addict in search of a fix! Well, I'm sure glad I took some time because I found a wonderful little book....looks almost brand new....and it was 50 cents! Take a peek with me at "Sabine's Notebook" by Nick Bantock....
I have another book by this author. It's called "Urgent 2nd Class" and it's all about collage and ephemera.
This envelope holds a letter....the book is described as an imaginary correspondence between Griffin and Sabine.
The page above is the front and back of a postcard.
This envelope holds a red greeting card.
This envelope has another letter and the other page shows the front of a postcard.
This envelope is made from some beautiful patterned paper and the letter inside has a painting of a lionfish on the header.
This entire book is just fascinating. All the envelopes still contain the letters and cards and they don't even look as if they've been read. The art work is incredible. I thought it was quite a find! Our library bookstore always seems to have something good either for cutting up for collages or for inspiration.
Now here's a couple more scrap collages I did....
The above is a two-sided piece....one is the front and the other the back. And here is another one....
These are quick and fun to do and they use up scraps that would otherwise get tossed in the trash. One of these days I hope I'll get inspired to do some more painting but until then I'm enjoying cutting, tearing, and gluing. It's therapeutic!
We've been having fantastic weather but today a front is moving in and by tomorrow it will be very chilly again. Spring this year has been fairly cool here....but I'm enjoying it. I know that hot stuff is on its way!
