They are really vibrant in real life.
Another manipulated page in the same book.
Now this next one looks really great also in real life
It is the plastic from under my paintings.
These collages are pages from a book called "seed", one of our 'four letter words'. The lovely thing about this book is the smell. I raided my spice drawer and it smells of cardamon, fennugreek, mustard and lavender from the garden and some others. The inset pages are wax paper with seeds and pods ironed between 2 sheets..sort of laminating them. I do this a lot for wrapping paper, just go and pick whatever is flowering, or leaves and then iron a sheet on either side of the flowers etc.
The photos are a collection of seeds I gathered and in some cases superimposed one over another, then some little drawings on other pages on rusted paper.
