This challenge has been more liberating in more ways than one. Only using glue, scissors and magazine cut outs, I created a series of collages in ’60s style and finally got the chance to use some of my vintage magazines for art.
French magazines”Le Noël” and “La Maison” I really love these magazines. I found them at book sale in Paris and bought them for a real bargain at only 1 EU. for all 65 .
Dated from the 1920,s, they show you how to make craft and decorate the home. Only wish I could read French… I just love the front illustrations. At the end of the book sale the vendors threw out torn antique books and old music sheets into the bins so I managed to rescue a few things and will use them in my artwork eventually.
