Many thanks!!! to both these lovely ladies who recently sent me goodies in the post for collage!
Filling envelopes with found papers to send of to members of the paper ephemera exchange group to use in collage and other creative projects

and sends it off to every member in the group

Its fun receiving art materials from all over the world to play with
“Bonne année” was created using a French perfume box with scrap pieces of label from a champagne bottle I shared with my family in Paris 2009
For the base I rescued some gold butter paper about to be thrown out in the rubbish

A little collage created from a vintage Australian recipe books and pieces of hand painted papers, wooden ice cream stick painted and washi tape.
As a child I can remember going on long trips to Melbourne by train . For lunch we would go to Coles cafeteria for a delicious ice cream sundae with fruit, jelly and lashings of chocolate or strawberry syrup. Topped off with nuts, cream and fruit.
I used many layers of a poster I found on the ground in Paris with handmade painted papers and acrylic gel. I sanded in between leaving torn paper and scratches in areas. My interest in this piece is the quality of the surface. During the process I made marks with permanent pens and acrylic paints. Gluing on torn papers and tearing off with sanding.
When I travel I love to photograph graffiti and other interesting walls and doorways . Europe has some amazing street art, while, my hometown in Melbourne, Australia, is known as one of the world’s great street art capitals for it’s street art and graffiti. Street Art Melbourne
