My Victorian Glue Book in an Accordion Blank Book March 2012
inside front pages
covers and back pages
I created this glue book using images from Mary Green at Green Paper. I signed up for her online class but have pretty much done my own thing with the images to begin. She has lots of good ideas for collage and this will be a fun class to work through. I think I may still go back into this book and add some distress inks to the torn edges of some of the images and may add some rubber stamped images, too. Ribbon? More pearls? Gold Dresden embossed pieces? Hmmm...
Anne, this is lovely. Connie
Very nice! Can you just quickly explain to me what a "glue book" is and how it is used?
Cheryl, A glue book is any book that you just glue stuff into. It's a way to do collage in a specific place. In this case, I wanted one place for all of these vintage images, so I used the blank accordion book format. One could also use an old book as a glue book, adding elements to the pages. I use mine like scrapbooks of a sort, usually themed in some way. I've also done glue books to collect ephemera on trips or to document summer adventures. Anne
