Old Books

Chemistry - NB

A collage made entirely from old book covers. It was created for prompt no.15 in The Collage Workbook by Randel Plowman, a collage project I’m doing with my sister Carolyn. Unfortunately Carolyn is unwell at the moment and wont be posting her collages for a while, but do visit her blog anyway and be inspired by her beautiful, creative mixed media artwork and textile art…

I used three different vintage book covers for this collage. I love the vintage blue colours and textures of the the different covers. Old books are great for collages!

  1. This is the one assignment that I know I will have problems with because I don’t have any access to old books right now. Maybe I will have to skip it and come back to it later. Sorry to hear that your sister is sick. I’ll check out her blog.

  2. I love the way this turned out, Evelyn and as always you have such a wonderful eye for color.
    Beautifully done, and I do hope that Carolyn is all better real soon.

  3. The textures, colors and titles… all mix together to create such an interesting work of art! 💙 I hope your sister will be OK. 💕

  4. There’s something very appealing about this project! I love how it all came together!

  5. Excellent dispersion of colors to make a very satisfying composition. I’ve never tried collage but the technique is really intriguing and your work is inspiring.

I'd love to hear your thoughts and observations...
