I’m just loving collage at the moment so here’s another for you to see.
‘The Green Cockatoo’
This collage was built on an old water colour that I got with a few others in a job lot at a church sale (I have left the original signature and just added mine). It adds to the surreal nature when magazine cuttings etc are applied. I’m really happy with this 🙂
I’ve been working on some flamingo themed artwork and products and this collage is one of my first pieces. I am very pleased with him and he seems to be becoming a springboard for some other work. I especially like the way the foil paper I’ve used on his neck takes on the look of his feathers 🙂I am pleased to say there is beginning to be some flamingo related work for sale in my online shop, for example the writing paper set below. 🙂
Had a super morning in Norwich joining in Makers Month which is on for the whole of February which has different crafts to try during the month. I went today because my friend Kally was there with her freestyle crochet. Here are a few photos from the event. The Idea for her stand was for people to make a piece of crochet for the totem pole in the pictures. Here’s me concentrating very hard on my piece! I was rather pleased with it in the end. Here’s me with super clever Kally… and here’s my piece attached to the totem! 🙂
Kally also makes amazing chunky crochet hooks from found pieces of wood. Here’s a link to the crochet event and here’s a link to Kally’s Facebook page Woolenwood 🙂
