Newly listed! Collage bundle kits.

I’ve had such a good respond to my collage bundle kits… Thank you very much!

Only 5 left! @Ateleliernostalgi  “Vintage Collage Kits” for vintage lovers. All you need is glue & scissors.

My kits are great for collage, altered books, framed as wall art, mail art, scrapbooks, journals, card making, gift tags and more. (A previous customer framed the vintage bundle to hang on her studio wall)

Each kit contains 70+ original vintage papers & ephemera. Hand picked and cut from my vast vintage collection of wallpapers, old book pages, bingo cards, graph papers, indigo & tea dyed papers and gold French crowns.

Each piece approx. 5″ x 3″ – 13 x 8cm.
1 side of a vintage hard book cover with beautiful decorated end sheets. 8″ x 5″ – 20 x 13cm. Each bundle comes beautifully tied with old string and a handmade wooden tag.



Paper Ephemera Arrival. Thank you Adrienne!

Thank you Adrienne! I got your envelope today. I love all the vintage papers you sent and the red envelope with the large year of the horse stamp is just gorgeous. An open cheque too:) Thank you again!

Whats under your Bonnet?

This was a fun project…I used a vintage 1960’s New idea magazine to cut out found words, phrases and images. Looking at my finished piece now, I can see the composition is all over the place with no central focal point and may change it in the future

I found the articles really funny and sometimes quite pathetic, on how women were seen and treated 50 years ago

Being a baby boomer myself, I remember going to rallies and protests for women’s rights in the 60s-70s

It makes you realize how far women have come since…

30 Days of Collage Stephanie Levy

Collage Tutorial 1 “Artplay”

My first practical day of the “30 Days of Collage” by Stephanie Levy course.

It was Melbourne Cup Day  so this was an excuse for me to grab a (naughty snack attack) stash to help me along with my artplay day. I gathered all my paints , crayons, salt, tapes and began.

The first lot of images are the process using, paint with salt, glue , tape, pastel and more…The second lot of images are the finished result.

What a fun way to get a big bunch of gorgeous papers together for creating collage and books !

and a few more papers felt pen, masking tape and water.

Thanks Stephanie!
