Once in awhile I play in my gluebook- a composition book designated for gluing pictures, or just randomly adding a collage. (Visit this yahoo site to learn all about gluebooks!) I was at odds with myself yesterday, so during a nice thunderstorm, I worked on these two pages. This first one has some imagery from my latest Trader Joe’s news, words from a 1937 ‘Stage’ magazine, and the cat is from a 1973 calendar! I had made an envelope from the calendar page, never used the envie, so I figured it was time to use the image. De-stashing my ‘stuff’ is my aim for the rest of my life- lol. The stamp borders are a tape, with the bottom border some washi paper tape.
This next image uses ads from the same ‘Stage’ magazine. I have an internet artist friend whom I’ve known for about 8 or 9 years from the altered books group I help moderate. We have shared a few pictures from his homeland on Facebook, and I thought of him as I saw these old advertisements. I have some other gluebook images in THIS folder.
