This hand-cut townscape collage is mounted on a 10"x20" birch panel that is 1.5" deep. The birch panel has been decoupaged with vintage book pages to create the background of the collage. Each of the little houses and trees were hand-cut with an exacto-knife from various beautiful decorative papers in blues and greens. The smoke from the chimney and the clouds were cut from black and white illustrations from vintage books. The vintage book pages I use for my collages are the pages I have taken out of my hollow book jewelry boxes, and are yet another way to find new used for these discarded books.

This is a one of a kind art piece, and would make a sweet scape for the imagination in any little child's room!
All of my pieces are hand made by me in my Southern Vermont studio, and ship carefully packed via the USPS.
