Collage Collections and Kurt Schwitter

There is nothing like being inspired on a Saturday morning to BE CREATIVE! I saw this lovely collage and started getting itchy fingers to do something similar.

I love old vintage paper ephemera and decided to gather some of my collection together to show you and to remind you not to throw anything away as it could be the crucial piece to finish your own creative collage.

Want more inspiration? Then go and have a look at the artist Kurt Schwitter – the Grand Daddy of collage art.

An old bus ticket, a torn out piece of typography, an old stamp, whatever catches your eye!

Framing the Painting Painting the Frame

I just had to share this with you.

More pics and links where I found these weirdly wonderful paintings at BeautifulDecay.com

Yet another original way to work with old ornate frames – let them become one with the art work so that they become the art work – gestalt!
