Playing with scissors

I LOVE collage and have been cutting and tearing up magazines and paper since I was a little girl. Searching out interesting images, precisely cutting with sharp-pointed scissors, carefully arranging just so, sewing to attach the larger elements and then finally gluing everything together is just the best!

I recently scored 15 LIFE magazines, dated 1945-48, and needless-to-say they are amazing. The photos and advertisements are a treasure trove for sure. Additionally my studio pal Naomi gifted me with several National Geographics from the 1920’s. I’m presently residing in image heaven.

I’ve been creating journal covers. The collages are sewn onto felt and designed to fit a Moleskine® cahier (paper-back booklet). When full, the cover can be removed and a new journal inserted.

The double photos show the front (left) and back (right) of each medium-sized cover. There are several types of journal pages: blank, ruled or gridded. All will be for sale at the upcoming Soulumination Holiday show in Seattle.
