Paper Relics

The artist behind Paper Relics, Hope Wallace, is undeniably addicted to collaging with antique and vintage inspired materials as well as digital ones. Her collage art takes the form of cards, magnets, jewelry, and she even tries to stimulate potential collage artists to get started with vintage paper packs, antique fonts, and image CDs that you can purchase directly from her website. Personally, and don't laugh, I've always wanted to collage an entire wall in a small space in my house, like maybe my office, with vintage magazine covers from fashion magazines or something. Which reminds me, my husband and I were house hunting in Germany last October and in one place we were considering, the entire stairwell leading to the first floor was a collage masterpiece of floor to ceiling Vogue magazine covers in all languages, dating back to way before any of us were born. They were beautiful. I walked down the stairwell, envisioning the previous owners who had the vision to create something so spectacular in this beautiful 1860 home. I digress...
