Sometimes it’s the background paper that creates the initial spark in me for making a collage, so I decided that I wanted a notebook of a bunch of random papers for collage art.
A couple of years ago I bought a used Zutter Bind-it-all, which is a tool to cutting holes on the side of a page, and then closes a wire coil to bind the pages together. I decided to use the Zutter for my notebook. The good thing about it is that you can add or move pages around if you really want to.
I made a couple to sell in my Etsy shop, but the dog got a hold of one and started chewing the corner. Since I could no longer sell that one, I used it to begin making collages.
I started with the cover, but after that I chose pages in random order — which ever caught my attention that day. There are around 20+ pages, all approximately 4″ x 6″
This was great fun! I’ll definitely do more.
