Glue it Tuesday - records of records


This past week at work, I was going through three boxes of 45 rpm records and writing the proper accession number on the sleeve (in pencil) for our museum's artifact inventory.  All items in a museum get unique accession numbers; maybe you've seen these numbers in a museum exhibit before.

So, two boxes down, one to go.  I hope to finish the third box today, when I go back to work.  We are keeping the records in their sleeves, even though the paper is probably full of acid.  Someday in the future, we'll wrap all the records in acid-free paper...  I've been making pockets for the 45s that have lost their sleeves, at least!



I glued a torn piece of paper I found in one of the boxes onto a 4x6 piece of heavyweight decorative paper (I've really been getting into the 4x6 size lately!)  Then I added some paper that's been laying on my desk... it has two new stamp designs that I've carved recently - a leaf and a fish.  Finally I cut and pasted some piano music I had on hand, since I AM focusing on music!  

Doodlestamper - Flowers
See the row of flowers?  This is from a self-inking Doodlestamper that I just bought.  Have you ever seen this before?  I bought it on the Joggles website, a new favorite place to buy supplies.  There are all different designs; I have a dash line too!

The records paper is a fun addition to the page. And I love your new leaf stamp!

How fun to be able to include that little bit of vintage ephemera into your piece. Great fun!

I like it! Did you carve stamps for a challenge project last year or so? Anyway, I like the leaf! I bet going through those 45s brought back some memories!

I remember 45s -- and we still have some LPs in the basement. Another creative project!

That little doodle stamper looks cool! Writing accession numbers of all the records doesn't seem cool. I work for the state parks and every single stupid thing we own has a number and a sticker to match. You can't get rid of junk from when the park opened in 1970 even if no one is using it if it has a number!

Sounds like you have a dreamy job, working with museum artifacts. I like how you incorporated a piece of the record sleeve ephemera into your collage. I'm a fan of working in the 6 X 4 size, as well. If nothing else, your work readily becomes a postcard! :-)

Very fun! I have a rolling paw print stamp that belonged to my mom. LOL - May have to get that out for a little journal adventure.
