Miniature Collage


You probably already know this, but I totally LOVE all small things, so when I received the *new* 'My Stamp' by Carabelle Studio I fell  a little bit in love with it :-)

I stamped it 12 times on white card and then stamped again but on various off-cuts from my Gel Press prints (I always use every scrap of printed card eventually!) I cut the centre rectangle to add to each stamp - it measures a very cute 3.5 x 4.5cm.



Look how small and cute!


Here they are as a work in progress:


It is a challenge to create a collage in an area so small, but layering of simple shapes in contrasting colours can look really effective.



Once I had finished them I couldn't decide what to do with them .... I may stick them on a burlap page in my Dina Wakley Journal (as above), or I may even stick them on an envelope as mail art ....


....or stick them on the front of a greetings card .... who knows? I'm undecided. I may even make a tiny concertina journal and stick one on each page. 

I think there is also a current trend in exchanging these, like ATCs. Who knew?!

Watch this space...!
