I've been slightly AOL in posting because I find it hard to get out of my studio to do other things.
I am on a collage binge (among other things).
I have always loved this painting of San Francisco's hills and cable car.
|French-Spanish Vintage dictionary from France....OohLaLa|
The fact that my French is horrible and I can't speak Spanish doesn't stop me at all..
|Look at this page -- examples of cursive writing.|
Love that red cover and the maps inside are a perfect size for postcard collages.
|Turkey....yes, I will be needing to use this one very soon....|
|I found a few handwritten notebooks by school kids -- two were in Russian (why didn't I buy those Russian flash cards?) and one in English.|
They were working these kids...
This one made his very own set of tabs -- clever!
|...and he wrote in lovely cursive writing....did you know they aren't even teaching kids cursive in US schools anymore...that is just sad.|
|And on the back cover the kid handmade this cool chart of various time zones.|
Oui, J'ai mis la lettre a la post.
|A reproduction of a very old Sears catalog - printing in 1969 so it is kind of old|
itself...and there is page after page of wonderful drawings..
|TIME is running out...|
I can't even fit all the photos on the post so I will post some over on the
Cappuccino and Art
Facebook page if you are interested.
Vintage booklets printed in Hong Kong for school kids --
ALL about writing letters and the post office.
So cool. A friend read it to me and it explains about the various ways you can send mail,
Can you see the postman on the cover?
|Collaged Postcard Series|
I tore those babies up and have been collaging ever since...
I have been collaging for years but recently heard about this book
The Collage Workshop
by Randel Plowman who blogs at
A Collage A Day
I am really enjoying the book. I like his style of collage and he has lots of interesting tips and ideas.
That about wraps it up from here, folks. Gotta get back to tearing paper and glueing...
What are you all up to these days?
