The Eclectic-page notebook

Sometimes it’s the background paper that creates the initial spark in me for making a collage, so I decided that I wanted a notebook of a bunch of random papers for collage art.

A couple of years ago I bought a used Zutter Bind-it-all, which is a tool to cutting holes on the side of a page, and then closes a wire coil to bind the pages together. I decided to use the Zutter for my notebook. The good thing about it is that you can add or move pages around if you really want to.

I made a couple to sell in my Etsy shop, but the dog got a hold of one and started chewing the corner. Since I could no longer sell that one, I used it to begin making collages.

I started with the cover, but after that I chose pages in random order — which ever caught my attention that day. There are around 20+ pages, all approximately 4″ x 6″

This was great fun! I’ll definitely do more.

  1. “My dog ate my artwork” becomes even better artwork! (lol) Great collages. I have a Bind-It-All also, and love making little books with it.

    1. Hmm. That’s a difficult one to answer because I get it from so many different places. Most of the time it is things that I come across on a daily basis. I know what kinds of papers I like and I’m constantly looking for them. But I do order some things through ebay and Etsy, like old postage stamps for example.
