Its fun receiving art materials from all over the world to play with
Whats under your Bonnet?
This was a fun project…I used a vintage 1960’s New idea magazine to cut out found words, phrases and images. Looking at my finished piece now, I can see the composition is all over the place with no central focal point and may change it in the future
I found the articles really funny and sometimes quite pathetic, on how women were seen and treated 50 years ago
Being a baby boomer myself, I remember going to rallies and protests for women’s rights in the 60s-70s
It makes you realize how far women have come since…

I loved making this collage using my collections of found papers and fabric.
I started off with an old school exercise book cover from the 1930’s. It was full of hand drawn maps. I added stitching to the map and some found vintage graph papers, aged canvas and a did a little hand drawing on tissue
The paper with one of the maps of Queensland Australia was very delicate, so I glued it down very carefully with archival gel medium. It’s a bit wrinkled but I don’t mind.
I added some fabric scrap from a vintage tablecloth depicting Australian wildflowers
Finally, I created little drawings all over the entire collage with pencils and ink pens
