Vintage Gluebook swap

Mary Green had a terrific idea for a swap involving creating gluebook pages. I created these collages using miscellaneous scraps and vintage backgrounds and sent them off to Mary.

Here is what I received back:

She created a book out of the individual pages and used vintage book covers from her collection. Isn't that cool?

These are the individual pages that I received in the swap:

Thanks to Mary Dawson, Kim Smith, Julie Loeschke, Joy Meadows, Kat Hou, and Linda Freeman - such fantastic collages!!!

Hi Penny
Wow! Such treats to arrive in the mail. To have all those pieces of art to savour.
I cannot remember if I mentioned that the ATCs were posted your way. Apologise if I didn't mention and will catch-up soon by e-mail.
