To give something a second life...

This weekend is the Book Art Fair in Leiden. I exhibit my work there for the fourth time.
Also for the fourth time I make collages for packing material for my work (small books, bookmarks and linocuts). I had many scraps of paper from collages and instead of throwing away I wanted to give it a second life. Also discarded envelopes, wrapping papers and acid-free folders get a second chance. It costs nothing, you can recycle anything and people find nice this kind of packing material. If I have a busy day it is nice to craft in the evening to relax.

Where do all these scraps of paper come from? In 2006 I made collages for a party at my work. It was quick and easy to hang and then discard.

 In 2007 I made collages for the farewell of a Deputy Director (her specialty is portraits).
And for Christmas of 2007 I made collages for a wall with posters (at my work).

Then I painted a few sheets of paper with acrylic for a few collages. For more collages see please set collages at my Flickr.

  1. Dag Angela, heel mooie mapjes en dat zomaar als verpakking! Ook de inhoud vind ik erg mooi trouwens. Ik heb hier een foto'tje van je werk op mijn blog (http://slootjesschilder.blogspot.com/) - hoop dat je dat goed vindt...
