This project could also be labeled as a glue book since I haven't done any mixed media, nor have I added any dimensional elements. Generally speaking, a glue book would be created from a base of paper such as old book pages, or journal pages. In this project I have built my collage work onto a children's board book from the 99 cent store. I began by sanding the shine and images off of the books pages, very easily and quickly done with a quality sanding block from the hardware store.
The page backgrounds are created from torn paper, using the scraps left over from the other projects I created using the same papers and art journal bits from Ephemera's Vintage Garden as used in my January and February creative team projects. I have also used torn dictionary paper, some music paper, and a few other scraps that were on my desk. I applied the paper in a haphazard fashion using a glue stick, trimmed out the edge then sanded the page to make it more even and sanded the edges of the page, and inked.
All of the images were then applied in layers also with the glue stick. The images are from Ephemera's Vintage Garden, apart from one or two little images that were part of ephemera packs I'd purchased previously at Joanns. The Ephemera's Vintage Garden paper and images used are mainly from the Miss Lady Fay collection, but I also added files I've purchased and some of the amazing freebie files as well. Links are available below.
If you love these images as much as I do, then sign up for freebies (some of which are used in this project). Go HERE to have the freebies delivered weekly to your email. I keep all of mine in an organized folder on my computer, easy to find and so much fun to play with!
