LISTEN TO THE SONG OF LIFE (created in 2005 for Somerset Studio Magazine)

This collage appeared on page 110 of Somerset Studio -- The Art of Paper and Mixed Media Volume 9 Issue 5 September/October 2005 -- Theme of issue "A Somerset Symphomy".

Pasted down on an old book cover (book happened to be named "Music Throughout the World) are sheet music scrap-booking paper, typewriter key stickers, an original piece of antique advertising scrap circa 1900, an image of a woman in meditation or dream state from a piece of vintage sheet music and a small piece of bird "scrap".

I first learned of this quote from the late great actress Katharine Hepburn:

Headlines


"An exhausting wonder"


"Which world is my world?"


In 2015 I got a big package form an antiquarian who collected all bookmarks from the books in his shop. I sorted them - receipts, calendars, envelops and postcards, photos .... and articles from newspaper. Some articles had very interesting and inspiring headlines.
 These two collages above are the starters of a new series with those headlines. Hope I can continue this series - I have some other headlines on my desk.

Curios Thing In Progress

The latest Curios Thing 'zine being collaged. Started a while back and add a bit when the mood takes me. It's easy to start these little books off but difficult to finish them as they need so much tweaking - hunting for the most apt word to fill that empty space etc. Hopefully be finished by the end of the Summer.
