WOYWW 620 and more collage pieces

 Welcome to Crafting With Jack and What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.  Just in case this is your first time here - in which case I say "Hello!" - Wednesday is the day we show off our desks, be they neat and tidy or a total pickle!  then we go off and visit.  We link up at Julia's Stamping Ground so come and have a look.


Still working on collage pieces, the top two are collage book pages, the bottom two are collage strips, I have done two inch and three inch ones.  I have done several of these strips and I am finding them quite relaxing.  I watched a YouTube video  "A Twist on Making New Pages from Old Pages".  I have seen how to make "Franken" pages with patterned paper.  This idea is similar except there is a final addition of tissue/napkin to strengthen the pages as old pages can be fragile.  The top picture below is the final page.  In the video the 2nd layer with just a faint image was used or white tissue.


The bottom picture is a tube of mints, kindly opened by Dolly, who then took the wrapper and left pieces all over the place!


Finally my desk, not quite as full as last weeks!  Have a great week and thank you for visiting.

Loving those collage pages and strips ANgela. Good idea to use a layer of white tissue over the top rather than gesso. Stay safe and happy WOYWW. Sarah #?

I love the thought of Franken paper!! Anything that uses old books is good in my opinion, i once thought that was sacrilege but better to be used and have a second life than just be pulped! Thank you for the leaf crib sheet, I’ve been having a practise!

I have a cat who love mints and cough drops. I cant leave packages in the open.
Collating certainly is fun and relaxing. I’m glad you are enjoying it.
Hugs,

Those collaged pieces are fabulous and the white tissue is a good idea as it's so light weight.
Hope you have a good week,

What a great way to recycle all those pages and create such useful pieces to work with - so clever and so patient!! xx Jo

The extra layer of tissue gives another bit of lovely texture - great idea! Stay safe and keep smiling, Lisa-Jane #5

Those vintage backgrounds will be great for all sorts of things later and must be quite relaxing to work on! Happy WOYWW! xx zsuzsa #15

I spent my morning making two very special Memory bears and now have time to catch up on a few of my favourite blogs.
Thanks for calling by at mine earlier. I love what you’ve been working on this week.

Hi Angela. I'm not posting today as I have a rather full schedule (goodness me!!). Just wanted to ask that, when you finally get that jigsaw from 2 weeks ago and have done it, please could you pass it on to Lisa Jane of WOYWW, as she has also asked for it. The whole round may well take some time as now 4 of you have wanted it. thought the best thing to do was simply get it passed round in the order the requests came in. Thanks so much.
Take care. God bless.

Just popped back to say... my oyster catcher was just a fabric collage - machine stitched in place on scraps of lace. The base fabric was a piece of duck egg blue embroidery linen (probably meant for tiny cross stitch). xx Jo

I just love those collage pieces and strips. Never thought of adding a layer of tissue over the top, would have put it underneath but I can imagine how good it looks the top way. Will have to try that some time. Your desk looks pretty full up to me - you call that "not as full"?
I must confess I had to look up the name of the stamp I used, I never know what they are called but yes, you were right. It is one of my favourite stamps and I have used it quite a bit now. Think I am a bit of an A&C fanatic these days - just ordered the big bundle yesterday. But I could not resist those stencils. (Well I could but I didn't want to LOL)
Your question about Flat Susan got me intrigued - do you remember her? Did she visit with you? Must say it was a fun project and I got a lot out of it - friendship I mean.
Hugs, Neet 7b xx

Hi Angela! Your pages look wonderful! I can see why you enjoyed making them, kind of zen-like! I can't wait to see what you do next with them! Have a great week, Lindart #27

Felicia said...

Angela, I love the take on new pages crafted out of old pages! Really neat! I love using old pages in colleage, it's just texture!! Can't wait to see what you do with them!! Me and Dolly would have to have a little talk about messing and not cleaning up!! LOLOLOL Got to love em!! :) Thanks for stopping by my blog and your lovely comment. I don't sell my crosses...or let's say I haven't. I usually make them to give away. I wouldn't know what kind of price to put on something like that! LOLOL I'd never be rich, that's for sure!! LOL It's so much more fun to give away and put a smile on a face!! Thanks again and blessings for the rest of your week! :) Felicia #21

that makes such interesting background Angela with the mix of sheet music and book prints. ~Stacy #25

Julia Dunnit said...

Such a good idea with the tissue napkins to strengthen. Your finished pages look fab. I love some of the names these clever people come up with...Franken pages, har har! Before I forget, the folios on my desk were from a set of great instructions by Kelly who is a desker...www.Kelly’s creative dreams.blogspot.com , she’s so clever and talks logic to me!

Felix the Crafty Cat said...

These pages look like a great way to use up all kinds of papers and the pages have turned out great. Hope we get to see the next stage. you asked me about the dragon journal, got it from Amazon just type in dragon leather bound journals, there are lots of different ones. You take care and have a very happy creative woyww, Angela x12x

Shoshi said...

I love your collage pieces, Angela, especially the mixed text and music papers, and the lovely neutral colour scheme too. What a good idea to strengthen them with tissue paper, too. Old paper can be pretty delicate. Thank you for your visit. I was so annoyed - as soon as I published my post, the owner of that video took it down for some inexplicable reason - it was the cutest thing ever, so really disappointing. Anyway, I've removed it now, because there's no point in having a useless video taking up space! I'm so glad you enjoyed seeing my sunshine pictures this week. We are really enjoying this gorgeous spring weather - both my hubby and me and the kitties!

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #20

I like your collage pages Angela. The colours and materials really appeal to me. I’ve got loads of old music sheets that he day I’ll do something with. In the meantime they sit within my eyeline in a vintage paper rack I have on the floor of my workroom.
Have a good week
