Collage Book

Standard

My latest collage project was decorating a book for a friend. I found a small notebook with hard covers for a good price at a thrift store. The images on the covers were ugly, so I decided to collage and decoupage.

This is the front of the collaged book.

This is what the front and back covers look like side by side.

My friend is going to use this book to log her travels in her Dolphin motor home.

About Blaize Sun

I live in my van, which makes me a rubber tramp. I like to see places I've never seen before, and I like to visit the places I love again and again. I like to play with color. I make collages and hemp jewelry and cheerful winter hats. I take photographs and (sometimes, not in a long time) write poetry. All of those things make me an artist. Although I like to spread joy and to make people laugh, my wit can be sharp. I try to stay positives in all situations, to find the goodness in all people. But I often feel compelled to point out bullshit when I smell it. I like to have fun, to dance, to eat yummy food, to sit by a fire and share stories. I want to know what people hold dear and important, not just make surface small talk. This blog is a way for me to share stories. This blog is made up of my stories, rants, and observations, as well as my photographs.
