Frog Collages – A Series of Collages Started

I love collages and adore frogs… So why should I not combine it all into frog collages? While everyone else is still doing birds, I’m doing amphibians (!), hoping to find art lovers as in love with frogs as I am. In my stash of papers I found a print of a frog, altered digitally […]

Collages in a drawer

Collages in a drawer

Hidden and revealed, collage by iHanna 2011. For sale on Etsy. I’m looking through the drawer where I keep collages. I found a few made during last year that I forgot to scan and show.

Notebooks with vintage covers

Notebooks with vintage covers

When I walk around at flea markets I am really drawn to old book covers. Not that I want to read all those dusty books, but the illustrations are often… telling. They speak of another time, before the internet and blogs and all that… I used to turn these book covers into notebooks, spiral bound […]
