My New Favorite Thing
It’s really just a simple collage technique, but lately I’ve been experimenting with printing onto pages from vintage books. I just tape the page to a letter size piece of paper and run it through the printer as usual. The printer can get a little finicky, but for the most part it’s really forgiving and really easy. And I love the end result. Above is one of Mimi Haddon’s images (see previous post) I printed onto the pages of a book on Southern Europe from the late 19th century. The time worn pages add a gorgeous warmth and depth to her already beautiful image.
