What can I do with?

Whilst sorting out a HUGE stack of old books I came across a old paperback copy of Oliver Twist that was falling apart.  As I went to toss it out I noticed it had lovely line drawings all throughout.  SO naturally I had to tear them out.  Now I just need to decide what to do with them?  Collage?  Use in a Junk Journal? Paint over? Altered page?  decisions, decisions!

Any ideas, anyone?


  1. Hi Linda, These pages would be beautiful in a journal. You could fold them and use them as signatures in a tiny book??. Good luck.

  2. Hi Clare,
    ooh thats a good idea! I'll have a play and see :-)

  3. I have no suggestions - but they are lovely !

  4. What a wonderful find! Just hang on to them ... The perfect use will present itself! nancy

  5. Scan them first and save them in your external hard drive--mine is called My Passport..they could be used in a collage like manner...because they are scanned you can make copies ...they would make a lovely sketch book cover laid out in a hap hazard manner---they even can be resized small enough to become a necklace when glued to dominoes...perhaps with old beads added here and there...a balloon could hold a print---find some quote from the book that inspires your mind...and that will speak to you of other possibilities...just a wooden block with holes drilled to hold pens or pencils with some of these prints collaged on it would make a handsome gift for anybody.....well, guess I'll stop now...hope this helps...your commission for the father was very touching ......winna

  6. great ideas - thanks! I set up the scanner just yesterday to scan some of my other artwork. I come across so much interesting ephemera, that I save, but then because they are kind of unique I am reticient to cut up... then I remembered the scanner! Too many ideas to try, and not enough hours in the day :-P


I love your comments! I read them all, and I will do my best to reply to you here! xo L.
