Hope you are all well and fit. We've had good weather here, but it's very dry, and we badly need some rain. We have some storms forecast, so looks like we could get some!
I have been working on making collages out of my scraps. I found a journal to use, which wasn't suitable for 'wet' painting as the paper is bad, but it will do for my scraps. But honestly, I think I have enough to replace the wall-paper in my apartment! By the end of June at the latest the scraps left over will be disposed of!
It's a lot more than I thought, not only paper scraps, but print-outs made and never used, pictures cut from magazines, newspapers and catalogues, brochures which I thought 'might be useful one day' and much, much more.
So here some pictures. The collages have no themes, although sometimes a theme did develop. Some are quite good, a lot are rather awful, and I will show a few each Wednesday this month:
I decorated the A4 journal cover last year:
The inside has a paper-bag pocket to hold bits and pieces:
I noticed when I made this double page that the colours bleed through:
So I had to utilize the colours for the following page:
Trying to bring disparate images together:
I made this on the day that George Floyd was murdered:
Faces and words:
Another wild mix:
And another crazy one:
I love the message on this ship:
Tables ready for visitors at the pub / restaurant:
And I still can't get enough of poppies:
One of the lanes I walk through every day:
The neighbours beautiful roses:
And last week there was 'excitement' in our little town. A car had evidently lost petrol / gas and the police and fire brigade were there to clean it up:
The police blocked the street leading into town - there is only one street leading in!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks for coming by!
