A Year of Cut & Paste

Vintage text pages are fun to create collages with, and there is no end to the combinations you can create. I had a lot of fun with these. Please let me know in the comment section if you can detect a favorite among these collages. I appreciate your visit dear reader, and your time! Thank you!

Thanks for visiting my blog! Thanks for supporting and encouraging me!

Thanks for NOT reposting or “reblogging” this to your tumblr site! This is my art, my work, my property, my blog and all content is Copyright Hanna Andersson, a.k.a I, Hanna.

I share it here on my blog at www.ihanna.nu and want to keep it here. I don’t mind if you want to link to it, it makes me happy if it inspires you to create something of your own! But I feel really sad when you use it as content on your own tumblr, because then people pin my content from that tumblr collection of stolen images and eventually any connection to who made it is lost. That is just infringement in so many ways.

I know you love my art journal images and collages, I understand you think you show me appreciation by using it elsewhere, but you are not. You’re not even very creative with your time. Why not spend your time creating art of your own? Even if my name is a watermark, or written under the image, who in this chain of events will ever find this blog? You might not care, but I do. And it simply makes me sad. Just thought I’d let you know.

This is a post in my series 365 Collages in 2013 | Plan Your Own 365 Project | About my Creative Process | Previously: Week 47 | Next Up: Week 49

    Vilka fina kollage. Jag gillar allihop :)
    I ett tidigare inlägg skrev du om vad du gör med dina pappersklipp. Det var verkligen inspirerande. Jag brukar samla alla i en gammal plåtburk och så får min son skapa fritt med dem + en massa bandstumpar.

    Hanna, I LOVE this post & agree with you 1000% on copying work, etc.! Great post, my friend!!

    And these beauties here! Love them, but my 2 favorites are “It’s an adventure” as I love the numbers & lines at the top & that little flourish of pink on the side. My other fave is “The Anonymous Diary Writer”… The patterns of the brown & yellow & patterned paper combined with the vintage text is so pretty to look at! Lots of visual interest there!

  3. Connie Rose says:

    My fave is It’s a Poetical World. It’s the orange globe and the black polka dots that do it for me. And re: posting your work elsewhere, I would never do it ~ I do not use or even visit Pinterest.

  4. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous work with us. I totally agree with you about the reposting of your photos, tumbler drives me crazy, I have spent so much time trying to find the artist not the reposter so I can restore the link. That is how I found you and I am so glad I did! xx Michelle

    I totally agree with you about the use of your art, it’s pitiful !
    I admire that your inspiration is always so original and I like all the advices you give us.
    This week I think that “A year of cut and paste” is totally balanced (I don’t know the good word) .”the anonymus diary writer” I like the touch of colors. “a dangerous world”
    not only because some words are in French but because it’s only beautiful and disturbing.
    Bravo, you always find the good title.

    I love “Topiary” because of the little topiary made out of washi tape and the Pfo Pfo text piece. Also “A Dangerous World” because of the giant world in the center and the overlapping cluster of numbers at the top. This week is so visually interesting and inspiring to me! Thanks for sharing your work with us and I agree about the reposting of your work. Pinterest is so frustrating to me because it’s so hard to find the original source!

  7. Hi Hanna! I so love to look at your creations!! I really love Topiary because of the very interesting pink scribble and the pink polka dot tape. I have a thing for dots & pink. Thanks for asking!! :-)

  8. Kelly says:

    I like your composition in “The Anonymous Diary Writer” best. Thank you for sharing! :)

  9. Kelly Warren says:

    I think I’m most drawn to the top image, “A Year of Cut and Paste.” I like the way the numbers jump out at me. And I hear ya on the copying work. That’s what kept me from posting any of my photography to Pinterest. Original creator gets lost so easily. I’m sorry this has been happening to you.

  10. Nina Joy says:

    A Poetical World is my favorite. I love any collage with vintage text but because this one has something handwritten too makes it extra nice. The Orange world combines greatly with the rest of the black & white theme. I’ve pinned it onto Pinterest so people will find your site when they see it. I always try to link directly to the creator’s site when possible and try not to repin when the picture does not link to the creator.

  11. Hi ihanna, I am wondering what your thoughts are on pinterest? Your post mentioned tumblr and I have had the same frustration. I have seen something pinned on pinterest and that took me to tumblr. On tumblr there is no way to find the original source. So if I see that I never repin or like or anything. But on pinterest it is set up to trace back to the original source and it seems to work. I’m just wondering your thoughts. I can certainly see the concern. Noone should benefit from another person’s work. And I agree with you completely.

  12. Erica says:

    I am guilty of adding your artwork to my WeHeartIt account which automatically links to the post it came from- other people can “heart” the image but it always stays linked to your post. I am sorry if this has offended you, please please get in touch with me and let me know if I have made a horrible blunder.

  13. rosa verdosa says:

    I definitely love Topiary collage!!!! I like too much black and pink combination!!! Your collage and your blog ar encouraging me to begin 365 collages this next year!!

  14. Andria says:

    I like the pieces that let just a bit of color peek through!

  15. Love the orange circles in A Poetical World and A Dangerous World! And thank you for what you said about copyright. A friend was once happy to tell me that she had seen one of my paintings on Pintrest. Apparently I was supposed to be flattered? I was rather creeped out to know my art was being used by someone I didn’t know, in ways I had no control over. Interesting times we live in…

  16. Mary says:

    Hi Hanna…I think my pick would be “A Dangerous World.” I’m sorry you have had problems with someone people using your images…it is frustrating that you do not get the deserved credit for your work. I totally understand! Have a good week and keep doing what you do.

  17. Chris says:

    This is great, Hanna. I’m glad you said it. In fact, saying it many times may be the only way people get it.

    Wishing you a lovely holiday season!

  18. Chris says:

    For some reason, It’s An Adventure just struck me. But I also love An Unhappy Martyr. Love all these textual things!

  19. Lee says:

    I love this entire group using old printed pages and brown papers. I always save any wrapping papers that come in boxes of purchases made online. My husband recently purchased a pair of warm slippers for himself, and they were wrapped and stuffed with lots of coffee colored tissue. He put the box out ready for the trash pickup next day, but I caught it in time! He laughed and said I’m a “pack-rat” but aren’t we all?
    Our local art center is having their yearly “Yard Sale” this month so I can’t wait to see what kind of “treasure” I can find there.

  20. Tammy says:

    Love all of these, Hanna, you have a way with combining text and neutrals with such intriguing results.
