Poetry Collage cards

Just a small selection of my latest poetry cards, made from 100% reused materials including out of date office documents, magazines and cardboard folders. The smallest one is a Japanese phone card.

What a great idea. It looks like you've got albatrosses on them ... sigh. I miss my job out at the albatross colony. (Note to self - go out for a visit soon.)

How wonderfully creative! Art within art! I love it!

These are great! I printed poems with my watercolors on magnet paper then trimmed them freeform- not recycled, I know, but that was as far as my mind reached in that other year! :) I love your style!
