More Doings of Snubby…

Before you ask, it’s just an old book and no, I haven’t even read it, but I do go on flights of fancy whilst using text and images from the book in my collages! This one is for Take a Word – “Mail” – this week. The background consists of a page from a book (torn in half), some torn scraps of handwritten notes of mine, a few old postage stamps and a bit of “Snubby”. Oh and some stamped binding fabric/tape, that I’ve been experimenting with!

More doings of Snubby

The backgrounds I create are very random and depend on lots of factors. I don’t worry about them or plan a collage anymore – like Kelly Kilmer says, it’s mainly a matter of practice – and in my case, having lots of “collagey” materials on hand. I can’t not use oil pastels or pencils anymore – it has become second nature to have them always to hand. I sit surrounded by small recycled fruit boxes of my most used art-icles!! And there’s always a waterpot and rags close by too.

I took the plunge and opened my Etsy store this weekend and will list items bit by bit. Do pop by and let me know if you like it? Feedback is always welcome. 🙂
