Thank you for taking the time to visit this page and wanting to know a bit more about me, Laura, or the business I've set up during lockdown: Gooseglitters!
I've always had a passion for paper products and have a slight obsession with retro, kitschy, vintage objects. I like to re-use old materials and I'm therefore super happy to make handmade collages created from recycled magazines / books. I like to think that the old beautiful content I find does not go to waste, but in stead lives a new life!
Besides my love for kitsch I've been strongly influenced by the analog photo stock of my granddad - his lifelong collection of pictures often features in my collages and hopefully show the beauty of those past times.
On a more personal note: collage'ing has always helped me quieting my mind and helped with anxiety struggles, so I would strongly suggest you to try it out yourself if you need a break from the busy day-to-day life! Feel free to send me a message if you need any tips on how to get started.
There's a lot more I would love to tell you about the collages I make, but I'd recommend you to check out my Instagram to see what I keep up with on a daily basis. I try to share more than just collage work, so you'll often hear me chat about my latest vintage magazine finds, collage processes, materials I use, new launches coming up, or stories around my granddads pictures.
If you ever wish to contact me for commissioned work, a custom collage, specific requests, tips on collaging or just a general chat: use the contact form on my website or send me a dm on Instagram!
