Vintage Stuff

Well I'm on a roll so you get TWO postings today.... I recently signed up for Your Vintage Gluebook online class with Mary Green over at Green Paper. I had been admiring her work for awhile and saw techniques I thought I could use for fabric collages.
Have no idea where I found the time - but here are some of my efforts based on Mary's very well explained instructions....

It has been fun going through my boxes of "stuff" to find things I can use...
The only rules - glue, paper, scissors - you'd think that would be easy but it was not! I constantly wanted to add other stuff.

You need to go check out what others created as a result of Mary's class - all of it really AWESOME! Something different and simple to do while on vacation.... Jewels


  1. Glad to see your photos and that you had a relaxing yet ambitious time in Canada. The walks must feel very good and the time to craft even better. I cut a quilt while I was up north for me to work on in the car while we are on the way to Cape Cod for a family vacation soon. Then Elle and I are off to Lake Placid New York for a skating competiton a week after that. So I am sure to have a very lot of time to work on hand piecing this quilt.

  2. Your pages are amazing - wonderful compositions, use of color, everything!

  3. Love what you are doing, Julie! Those are wonderful. You most certainly have the eye to do those lovely pages - and all the other art projects. I visited the website and really like what I see there. Also, your cottage looks wonderful and you again have posted some great photos. Glad you got some "Julie" time in. Carol

  4. Love the collages you made - the gluebook - scissors, glue and paper only - is a challenge- but Mary does have some tricks to make it easier. That reminds me- I have some images I printed for my gluebook- but it IS hard to find the time...

  5. Hey Jewels, how ya doing? I love your collages!! I especially like that one with the girl. Looks like your having fun. Keep on keeping on! XO Fran.
