chasing paper

so for the last few weeks i have been hunting through skips, breaking into old peoples houses and stealing from library's....well,OK not quite, but i have been hunting around London for old bits and pieces for the paper chase, organised by magic jelly, who has asked for contributions to her paper collection, and in return she sends you a collage made from the stuff you send...how fab is that, well i personally love this kind of thing so immediately got together a collection of old papers, cards, stamps and comics, it was requested that we send old papers that have faded and bruised with time,
you can see from the picture above that i got one thing dated from 1925, and i love how it will be reused in a modern interesting way in another country far away, when i get my collage i will blog about it..so if you want to get involved, read all about it here...

Oh my! How exciting!!! You've gone to so much trouble to put together your collection...I'm going to have to put my thinking cap on & come up with an extra special collage. Thanks for joining in! xxx
