all squares are size 4x4 inches (10x10 cm)

this blog might be a bit neglected at the moment, as i´m working on an altered book quite the same style as these squares... so you better visit my main blog mixedmediafun for more posts... thank you!

the 3 muses - "something old / something new"

the current challenge at the three muses perfectly fits my intentions for the new year: i want to take something old - to make something new out of it. (more information in my previous post.)
so here i took old scraps that lay around to make this collaged square... that´s why the name of this new blog is scrap squares:)




die aktuelle herausforderung bei den 3 musen (etwas altes/ etwas neues) passt super zu meinem neujahrsvorhaben: ich möchte aus alten seiten und schnipseln etwas neues gestalten (mehr dazu in meinem vorherigen post).
also hab ich auch hier dieses collagenquadrat quasi als resteverwertung gemacht...

Johanna what a wonderful idea to make something new from something old and to make it so beautifully. I love your colour palette and the whimsy in your piece. I shall follow your new blog with interest as I could do with using up more of the 'older' stuff. Happy New Year.

Fabulous idea Johanna and your first two squares are brilliant! Ah yes, our endless stashes, I have draws and draws full of them, that's why I really really like this idea. What are you going to do with the squares? You could turn them into a book....

This is such a great idea Johanna. I too have way too much paper coming out of my ears--it's my weakness--this is a great way to put it to good use. I'll be looking forward to your future posts!
