Vintage sun . A collaboration collage with my mum who was visiting.
I found a vintage photo of a family enjoying a day at the beach side. My mum chose the corrugated chocolate paper and positioned the boat wallpaper.
I then added some French flourish stamping to the background and colour to the sepia photo using archival inks.
We finished off with some handwriting, beach shell fragments and fabric flowers.

I really enjoyed creating the nature collages. I drifted back to the Summers of the ’60’s when with friends, running fast on the path to the beach ,our feet would burn:) I also remembered organizing the nature table at primary school. My favorite subjects were, art, nature and social studies. I collected many of the coastal found objects items from Australian beaches and from my own backyard.
