Swapatorium = Love

I have had so much fun checking out all the great old photos, illustrations, and other goodness over at Swapatorium that I just had to share... Angelica has a large collection of unique scans on her blog, and a really cool store called Snapatorium that has a wide variety of vintage photos that are for sale. Here are a couple of my favorites from her blog:


Angelica doesn't stop there though, she is involved with three other blogs devoted to collage art, which are full of so much great work it really blows my mind! I've dabbled in collage myself (it's on my "things I want to devote some real energy towards before I die" list), and looking at these blogs gets me all fired up to try it again.

Fantasy Rooms - I LOVE this idea! Funky, retro, surreal interior landscape collages - here is one of my favorite examples:


Scrapatorium - The talent overwhelms me:


Scrapiteria - This is a group project - "Scrapiteria is made up of collagists who work in the traditional cut and paste method. Each week, one of the members posts a new theme which we all interpret in our own way."

Much vintage geek love to Angelica for all her hard work!

Oh wow, thanks so much for the super nice post! I just recently discovered your blog (I have a link on Swapatorium too) and have really enjoyed reading about all your finds.

If you do take up collage again, let me know. I would love to see your work. Have a safe and happy New Year!

Glad you liked it! I hope to try the collage work again soon, it really is fun and a great creative outlet, but I have so many things on my plate it is hard to squeeze the fun stuff in most days... ;)
