Many thanks!!! to both these lovely ladies who recently sent me goodies in the post for collage!
My first practical day of the “30 Days of Collage” by Stephanie Levy course.
It was Melbourne Cup Day so this was an excuse for me to grab a (naughty snack attack) stash to help me along with my artplay day. I gathered all my paints , crayons, salt, tapes and began.
The first lot of images are the process using, paint with salt, glue , tape, pastel and more…The second lot of images are the finished result.
What a fun way to get a big bunch of gorgeous papers together for creating collage and books !
and a few more papers felt pen, masking tape and water.
Many years I have collected wallpapers from all over the world. My favourite Australian designer would have to be Florence Broadhurst
Her designs are bold, abstract, wild, organic, colourful, patterned, textured,sophisticated and just beautiful.
Florence Broadhurst was exotic, eccentric, flamboyant, enigmatic, opportunistic, pioneering: all this and more.

Merci beaucoup Valérie! …The gorgeous little parcel of vintage black & white goodies from France arrived today.
At first I didn’t want to touch anything as everything was so nicely arranged in the vintage DMC box
but then I slowly took out each item savouring each little thing.
Inside I found a wonderful collection of antique buttons, cottons , trims, black velvet ribbon,cotton trim. My favorite would have to be the bunch of wooden Art Nouveau buttons and the little pin holder
Oh and the stripey buttons…..
Thank you Valerie!
