It's great fun to integrate written recipes with pictures of their component parts and the kitchen tools that are necessary to make them. Planning a solid composition to accommodate all the parts might find me making sketches for days. After the items in the composition are drawn, colored, cut or torn and glued down, I rubber stamp the recipes on tracing paper placed over the collage to figure out the spacing before I lay a stamp on the original.  Spacing is tough and sometimes I print the words to the left of an object starting with last letter and working to the first to make sure it fits nicely. See the word "sugar". I printed it starting near the teapot spout, "ragus", working right to left. Torn paper collage with rubber stamp lettering.
