What A....

Great weekend....a workshop with Lynn Perrella. This is the end product (bad pictures as its behind glass) a fab time collaging everything in sight!

The image was provided and the idea was to make it your own...I have a ton of vintage stuff sitting in drawers, stuff I've collected over the years and wanted to use it, this was the perfect opportunity.

I usually use bright vibrant colours so this was an exercise in restraint.......not easy!



I kind of like it.


especially the bird's nest hat!

What a lovely piece! I have about a billion tonne of old vintage stuff I have made the mistake of saying "I like this too much to use it...etc" and ended up with a whole pile of stuff. This has inspired me to put it all together! Is it in a box frame?
