Etsy Update





A visit to the little "shop" at the town recycling center always yields some wonderful old hardcover books. They are not only a resource for vintage letters and words for use in my collages, but the covers offer a perfect base on which to create.

The collages featured here are among those that are listed in my Etsy shop tonight and have all been created on vintage book covers. I had an especially good time working with paints and stamps and textures on the backgrounds of these, and I hope that you are as pleased as I am with the outcome.

As you close down your holiday weekend, stroll on over and take a peek.

Nancy, would love the recyling center "shop". I have been looking at book covers, thinking they would make great canvas. Love what you did to these.

Hop on over to my blog soon, I have an award waiting for you!
