Fabulous Friday Finds
Well, on the West coast it is still before midnight, therefore, I still have time to post my FFF’s! Today’s offering is all about my love of paper and books. People discard the most wonderful things. A few weeks ago I came across these book plates. There was a huge box of several different kinds near the dumpster at my friend Anne’s studio. I took what I thought was a lot, she took some. When I brought them home I got the idea to make pads of paper for notes. I used PVA glue thinly applied to the top edge of a clamped set of papers. It worked! I will also use some of the images for collage or ?, too. I went back the next day to see if I could snag the rest, but they were gone. The book about Holman Hunt was found by Anne near the same dumpster. She gave it to me! What a sweet thing to do. It has some beautiful color plates inside. Before I alter it or cut it up, I feel compelled to read it. I was taught to respect books. Do you have trouble defacing, or cutting up books like I do? I’ll just have to get over it!
