Artistic Pages

Well if you have been collecting stamps, what do you do with them and how do you display them?

There are plenty of traditional stamp albums and stamp pages. Look on any good stamp collecting site to learn about what is available and how to use stamp hinges or stamp mounts to protect your mint stamps – stamps that have not been postmarked. Try www.planetstamp.co.uk

But I like to display my stamps in a more artistic way. I also like scrapbooking – there are lots of sites about crafts and scrapbooking too. I sometimes mix my stamps with other related material such as photos, magazine/newspaper cut-outs, actual bits and pieces etc.

Here are examples of some evolution related pages:

Minerals and Fossils has actual pieces of pyrite, amethyst, agate, corals and sharks teeth on the page!

In ‘Posting with Dinosaurs’ I used an old stamp magazine and cut out part of the article then added the real stamps.
