I answered an ad from a seller who had "scraps" from vintage postcards. (Very reasonable price asked. ) for decoration, collage art, scrapbooking,etc so I sent the money and the packet arrived. Of course I expected the "scraps"---As a postcard collector' I handled them with some befuddledness ( new word) of mine and spirit because I have never seen such a thing as postcard scraps before (PHOTO #2)
I keep my postcards with some damage, so O.K. I still find some charm in them especially if they happen to be important in some way such as famous artist renditions that are collectible' Then I says to me self, says I...Would I?, Could I ever take a batch of my cards , less that good plus, and with a scissors... do this?.
This concerns ALL PAPER COLLECTORS---would YOU? could YOU_____________________________________________
Along with the scraps which I laid out on my bed--I received a lot of really nice Whole, not cut up vinage cards--SEE # 1 PHOTO( there are more), and wonder if cards for scraps were cut from cards like this? And were they included---- so I could cut them? EEEK
I am thinking about the thousands of paper collectibles that were used on scrapbooking! This is something I could never do! Altho the arrangement in photo #2, shows me they can be used as "art".
But not by me.
