some collages....


just thought i would show these collages i did before Christmas. im thinking of making some of these to sell IF we get into the market in March.
ive used my vintage prayer book papers and japanese kimonos ....the flowers and stems i bought from blue bazaar, I didnt frame them but mounted them straight onto mattboard ready for framing...
the image on the bluey one i printed onto organza which is a look i really like...Thanks to Margaret too for the lovely brown bamboo paper...




I go to back to work on Monday ...sigh......had a great holiday , not that it was holiday more of break from work :) it feels good to have had a good clean out, catch up on things and spend some time with Charlie who seems to be settling in well (shes not been home much lol ;)
The floods are still travelling through towns around about and another 20cms of rain is expected this week , thats after the 40c day predicted tomorrow.... hope its cooler when i go back to work....
