Lately, I have been struggling with creative ideas… So I decided to start a collage! Here is my beginnings on a 8×10 inch canvas board – doesn’t she look like a sweet angel?
I randomly chose pages from these books (and fabric pattern) I purchased at thrift stores, yard sales and antique markets:
The papers I choose help me create a story yet I do not think too much about which papers I’m selecting before I glue them down. I also like to include an old photo of someone I do not know. I usually make a copy to preserve the original photo.
Next, I glue them to a surface with Liquitex Gloss Medium and use an old credit card to remove any air bubbles.
A morsel of trivia – According to Wikipedia, the first cookbook to contain an angel food cake recipe was in 1878 from Isabella Stewart in The Home Messenger Book of Tested Recipes.
Tomorrow, I will show you my next step!
Happy Creating! 🙂
