  1. Hello! Thanks for the little comment, nice to hear from another UK blogger, there seem to be hundreds of US ones but we're the minority in comparison! :) Loving these snapshots of your collages, they'd look great scanned and framed on your wall I bet x

  3. I remember my art teacher suggesting scanning, then it means you can work over them more (maybe handwriting or something) without the fear of ruining the originals! :) x

  4. and this is why i am so pleased to have started a blog, so i can be inspired by other people :) photocopy transferring would work well with things like this, have you tried it before?

    love, jazzabelle.

  5. Yes I did a project about 'sloth', and drew my brother haha! It can be quite effective if you're original copy has some height to it, then when you scan it the new digital image can inadvertently capture some tiny shadows made by the collaged paper... but I just messed around really! :) x

  6. sounds cool! i am focusing on photocopy transerring for my art project at the moment, as i have really been inspired by an artist called natasha kerr who uses old family photographs to create one-off fine art textile pieces :) her work is amazing, and very detailed.

    love, jazzabelle.
