Another on the money theme, this one more about savings in the form of savings stamps. An oxymoron since they were only handed out when a consumer spent money. But oh my, we did love them for acquiring applicances and whatnot. Collage, color pencil, photo, ink, marker.
Another, loosely on a money theme. Saving and taxes here with photo of anybody's aunt. Every adult I knew used savings stamps and redeemed them for merchandise to aspire to the good life. All made possible with appliances. The money was a prerequisite of course.
Ginna's huge gorgeous archive arrived and I used some paper from it as well as the metallic lace at top. I wanted to just play with string and pieces of fabric so this was fortuitous! It doesn't mean a thing, but I loved working on it!
One more in a series. I haven't the perserverance to stay on the same track most of the time, but this may be a more enticing subject, there really isn't a day that our culture's worship of money doesn't affect me. So here's the latest. The guy in the suit looks more comical than I intended....but I can live with that.
It's about the money. This is the first in an ongoing theme. I hope. My tendency is to become bored with thematic material and move to the lyrical or obscure. But we'll see how long it lasts.....if I can keep it up I'd dearly like to put them in a small show.
A page that was created in between decisions. I'm thinking about doing some work around the theme of money, this is the page used to explore some of the other concepts that money has infiltrated. I needed definitions for the words in green to make certain I knew (at least) what Webster knew. When I hit a bump in my progress, I did a little more work on this page. It was respite and allowed me to breathe between some of the ideas.
Photos of people with their possessions speak to me about where the culture puts it's hopes and dreams. Whether those dreams are worth the effort is a whole other can of worms. In Blueland they don't worry about that.
A return to wrapping text in more text. There's a recessed area in the middle though that doesn't really show up here. For this size the cut-out creatures from dictionary pages work well. I added fabric to this one as well and then added color with lavender pencil.
