collages






at some point in the summer, i shall be moving my studio from what is really meant to be the farm office into the old kitchen...it's over the other side of the house and looks into the front garden which will be rather nice. i'm not sure it's much bigger than the space i'm in now, but it's in the old part of the house and so has high ceilings and a big sash window. i've been pretty indulgent with lighting too so it's shaping up to be a really great room. it also has a mahoosive cupboard that i shall use as strorage and dark room. i'm excited...
anyway, i started moving some boxes around (somewhat halfheartedly i have to say) and found these little paper collages i made at the beginning of the year. i've decided to sell them, so if you saw them months ago and liked the look of them, they can be bought at the very affordable price of $20 each (around £12)...just click here to go to my shop! i might even find some extra little goodies for the packages...

These are lovely. The stitching detail makes each on special.

Collaging can be so cool, and it's a great way to repupose items you might otherwise have thrown out. I've collaged old mirrors, drawer inserts and coffee tins, to name only a few. You should try it with other household items like these <a href="http://www.blissplan.com/mixed-bag/give-your-old-kitchen-items-a-new-lease-on-life/>upcycled kitchen things</a>.
