top viewHop on over to Seth's blog, our gracious host, to find the links to ALL the disintegration collaboration project reveals. Now that I've done this once, I have an idea about what I would like to disintegrate next time. Some of the papers I buried disintegrated into nothing and some were aged nicely. I carefully cleaned off the papers and put them in my freezer in a plastic bag to be sure there was no wildlife left in them.
I loved the papers stacked together, so I used most of them for this bundle/collage. I sewed onto one page a fabric paperwhimsy image using a piece of cloth under the page in order to keep it together solidly. When sewing through the old paper, it can cut it into two pieces as the sewing machine makes it's perforated line.
little book inspired by Stepanie LeeInspired by Stephanie Lee, I made a little book out of some of the pages which is attached to the peace and love vintage ribbon. Since I love bling as much as rust, I added a row of rhinestones to top it all off.
Next time, I will bury more components. I'll bury some cloth, and more string. And some rusty things wrapped in cloth. I'm off to collect and gather now - what will you disintegrate next?
