Easy Mixed Media Booklet

Here is an easy mixed media collage booklet that I put together last week. It started out as a 4″ by 9″ 16-page promotional booklet for the town of Chester that I picked up somewhere. It was in my pile of local interest flyers and turned out to be the perfect size for this. First I glued pairs of pages together with mat gel medium and separated the pages with wax paper while they were drying so that they wouldn’t stick together. Once everything was dry, I removed the wax paper and primed the pages with gesso. After that was dry, I painted color fields of acrylic onto the pages to make interesting backgrounds. Finally, I sorted through my collage bins and chose items that appealed to me and glued them down using a glue stick. Here is an animated gif of the booklet.

    I like the background colors. And the mix of elements you chose for the pages are cool! I think I see some vintage stuff.
