Cut + Paste Therapy #3

The cheapest therapy on earth is to sit + cut + paste. "I Love Lucy" on the TV in the background is a nice touch. Thank you Aimee of Artsyville for this glue book challenge! These pages have been so much fun to do. I like hunting through my magazines and ephemera and baskets of papers for treasures. A treasure hunt.

Pages from my 8 1/4 x 11 3/4" Clairefontaine Carnet de Voyage. 

The 6th pair of pages from the cut + paste journal. I started this with the rainbow on the right {neocolors on an index card} and decided to go with a bright cheerful theme, and searched for reds, pinks and oranges in my stack of magazines and collage-gear. On this page you'll find images from Japanese and Italian magazines, Japanese wrapping paper, Japanese washi paper, cuttings from the gelatin prints I made, found words, hand painted papers, tissue paper, tea bag envelope.

 

Pair #7

Clippings from Japanese and Italian magazines, Japanese wrapping paper, Japanese washi paper, cuttings from the gelatin prints I made, found words, hand painted papers, tissue paper, tea bag envelope, postage stamps. Marks with colored pencils, as they were handy.

 

Pair #8

More stuff from Japanese and Italian magazines, cuttings from the gelatin prints I made, found words, hand painted papers, ticket stubs, forms, vintage papers, postage stamp, doodles, moo card of a photo I took, washi tape... 

So visually energizing.
