Sharon created these gorgeous pages with a combination of Gluebook class pages, her own images, and a collage sheet from the first Artist Class (the images looked so familiar because I made the sheet - LOL!)
She claims her pages are very derivative of mine, but I told her she could teach the class if I get sick.
Sharon doesn't have a blog - yet - but needs to get one soon so I can see more of her beautiful work!
More lovely creations from Artists using my images - what smart and pretty ideas everybody has!
Gail stocks more banner styles in her Etsy shop, so stop by and take a look at what she has available. Thanks Gail!!!
Wow! Karen Bensom of Recycled Rita was a part of the Petite Inspiration Box Swap and used some of my images on her swap gifts. They are all beautiful! Karen sent me the pictures so I could show them to you too!
This is the outside of her boxes. The bird image on the center box is from the Tennyson calendar:Logomachy card images.
And here's a box and banner to show what one gift looked like for the recipient - lucky!
Thanks for sending these to me, Karen, they are wonderful!
These are going into the Your Art Using My Images album, I'd love to add YOUR art too, so please email pictures when you use my images. Thanks!
I replaced the pictures in the last post with scans, since I just reinstalled my old scanner. It's quirky but it's still better than the other 2 I tried to replace it.
For those who ask, a gluebook is normally a book in which you use just paper and glue - no paint, ink, stamps, etc. Usually gluebooks are made with modern materials, sort of pasting your everyday life into a book.
I try to call mine a vintage gluebook since all of the paper I use is old (or copies of something I have that's old).
I tend to get a lot of personal e-mails with very specific questions about my gluebook. Does anyone have interest in an online vintage gluebook class? Between the supplies, finding good paper, creating collages, there may be a class there.
If you think it sounds like an interesting idea, let me know. You can comment here or email me at email@example.com. Oh, and let me know what you think the class should cover.
A couple new spreads in my Vintage Gluebook...
I realized that every paper in the page on the right is from the free images album - except that strip of musical notes.
I'm trying out the little pocket soft cover Moleskine Cahiers notebooks - the thin 3-to-a-pack style. The paper is much thinner than the pocket sketchbook I normally use. That could be good considering how much paper gets layered on these pages sometimes. The little notebook lays very flat, so it could be my new favorite. I'll keep you posted.
I hope you had a wonderful Easter - the last of the baby rabbits hopped away this morning. We'll miss them.
