Collaged notebook

I just finished this A5 collaged notebook. This is the front and back. It uses a lot of images that I've been keeping and that I'm particularly fond of, such as the girl with the balloons and the rollerskating girl. Also two pictures of myself as a child. The Bind-it-all binder makes such books very do-able.

This is gorgeous! All those wonderful images forming a crazy patchwork of interest. All those brilliant colours give it a wild gypsy feel.

Lovely work.

Jane,
You're a girl after my own heart. Great images and a real eye for colour. What would we do without a glue stick and pair of scissors to keep us occupied?

Is that you in the stripy dress and then the spotty dress? If so, cute hair!

And that's a lovely compilation.

Great mix of images!Still envious of the binder (though what I would do with it, I don't know!).
Are they all copies, or do you use original old images?

Hello Jane, that looks great! I like the overflowing mix of colors and motifs that immediately jumps to the eye, a real good mood book. Bind-it-all at its best!

Thanks for all your comments. The images are mostly colour photocopies as I have a huge stash of these, made for a course that turned out to not require colour xeroxes. But I've also used some original Victorian scraps -- just a few, to eke them out. The whole thing is 'varnished' with a couple of coats of PVA glue and then the book has clear plastic covers as well. Belt and braces.
