The Queen of Hearts

"Zelda" (that is what I have named her) is a found photo pasted down on an antique endpaper and flanked by two reproduction playing cards (from a deck identified as I. Hardy Card Maker to his Majesty & the Prince of Wales.)

The Digestive System

Just back from a nice weekend in Yorkshire so haven't made much collage lately - started this one before I left.

Fish Glass Toss at the Carnival of Inappropriate Games

If your ping pong balls lands in the glass you win the fish!  Really?  I remember Gold Fish Bowl Toss when I was a kid.  Poor little fishies.

(Note on collage elements:  I had just cut out those glasses of water from a newspaper advertisement and wanted to use them in a collage soon.  When I read the theme of this week's collage challenge this came together pretty quickly.)

A message from Fi

Hi everyone.  I have been in contact with Fi and she has asked me to explain her absence from The Kollage Kit.  At this time health circumstances do not allow Fi access to her studio which involves climbing up steps.  You might wish to check in with Fi and wish her well.  As I know more I will post updates.  Please keep her in your thoughts.

No Left Turn

Postcards From the Edge (Tirol)

Conveyor Belt

Sign Art: Kollage Style! This week's theme.

Those signs have surrounded us everywhere for years - telling us this, telling us that.
So, looking for your take on all kinds of signs we might see. For Mad Men fans it could be your version of vintage or current advertising signs for real or imagined products.
A small element of typography is to be included somewhere.

Giant Fool on the Hill

Just made this collage!  I was in Baltimore and New York City all week.

Found my 'giant fool' in a favorite NYC haunt, The Argosy Book Store, 116 E. 59th Street.  Since 1925, six stories of old & rare books, prints, photographs and autographs.  A place Joseph Cornell visited routinely to find ephemera for his works.  The Argosy has a table set up outside the shop featuring $1 bargain books.  The fool is from the back cover of a $1 1984 exhibition catalogue of French Drawings 1550-1825 published by The Pierpont Morgan Library.  He is "Momus" by Gabriel de Saint-Aubin (1724-1780).

Momus is pasted down on an old painting which I trimmed and placed on top of a photograph of a landscape.

It takes a fool to remain sane

 From the archives..
One of the first postcards I ever made.

Playing The Fool.

Greetings everyone! Here I am, your Kollage host for April.
We've just had April Fool's Day. We all love a fool…we might have been one ourselves occasionally. So, looking for representations of The Fool. Clowns, jesters, movie fools, favourite fools, silly fools, historical fools, old fools, fools who break the rules……Ron
