Not sure what it is about an old dictionary, but there is something beautiful about letter after letter spanning the onion skin pages. They aren’t practical anymore – its so much easier to look up a definition on the web but they can be appreciated in other ways.
Here is how to make your own art using an old dictionary!
Step 1: Get one old dictionary. (Purchased for $1 at junk shop)
Step 2: Find a dictionary page suitable for the print. (For example, I selected the pages including the word ‘sit’ and ‘furniture’ for this set)
Step 3: Carefully tear out page; trim rough edge straight.
Step 4: Find and print out an image you like (try searching for free clip art online!).
Step 5: Using regular old laser printer, print your selected image on to the dictionary page (or a photocopy of a dictionary page).
Step 5: Matte & Frame as desired.
