This collage is a real mix of things. A little bit of background from Mary's Collage Club , a free download from Hope Wallace Karney and some pictures from magazines. I made her skirt from a stack of sweaters in a J. Crew catalog.
I also played with my fashion magazines in a journal I started last year.
Yesterday I stopped at an estate sale and found this scrapbook.
I paid more than I wanted to but I couldn't leave it there. It is filled with plans for someone's dream house. There are papers inside from the 40s, 50s and early 60s. The creator cut out pictures and glued them in her scrapbook.
She even picked out her choices for a vanity.
Most of the book has unfinished pages and there is an unglued stack of floor plans inside.
There are some really cute advertisements in it too.
This next one is hilarious!
I love that this woman made a book to keep her house dreams in. I wonder what her name was. I couldn't put the book down once I saw it and I really tried to talk myself out of it but I couldn't. I want to work in her scrapbook and continue to glue the pictures that were tucked in the book.
Also, Mary Green is hosting a Vintage Gluebook Page Swap. Check it out and join in. I can't wait to work on it!
