I thought I'd finished with seedheads for now until I saw my tiny Acer tree just starting to come into leaf. It's been torrential rain all week till yesterday & today it's been glorious warm sunshine & I actually had a chance to get into the garden. I remembered I had some little seeds pressed betweeen the pages of a book that I'd collected from my parents' tree last October.
Scuse the flash, well it was bright earlier! The seeds are stitched by hand ( & gel medium above & below for strength) to a silver metallic powder painted piece of blue paper, the like of which I've never found again. So I used it instead of keeping it 'safe' in my paper stash. There are small bits painted papers from last week all stittched onto a 'matching' piece of found fabric. I've scribbled here & there with oil pastels & oil sticks & highlighted parts of the seeds with silver wax. A few beads & lots of messy threads, delicious!
Sample 2, more of the same but different.
A small collage about 5" x 7"
& one about 10 x 6". No idea what to call them, this one is really glowing!
I haven't read any blogs the last few days so after supper I'll treat myself to a little blog hopping, lovely for a Sunday evening.
