St Ives again!

I don't know why I chose to do another collage of St Ives when there are so many beautiful places to choose from around here!

Perhaps it's because there's a gallery there that want some collages of mine, so it's back-up if I don't manage to sell it myself!

Or perhaps it's one of my favourite places in the whole world!

The piece is about 22cm wide by 15cm high - and it took me less than a day. I feel like I've been pretty prolific this week!

I've really enjoyed it. But now, orders have gotten in the way, and I have owls and love birds to make! Hoping to do one of the moors later in the week! I'll be sure to keep you posted!

In the meantime I'll leave you with this...

Isn't it cute? Some of you may recognise the image from Scandinavian Stitches by Kajsa Wikman. When I saw it was available as an art print in her Etsy shop, I bought one immediately and now it's framed in my studio. I love it!
Kajsa also writes a blog - go check it out! Have a fab weekend y'all!

  7. You almost make me want to try a collage- you make it look so easy and I know it's not. Truly brilliant. We have sun sun sun here- about time too. Hope your weekend is filled with sun and fun, Ax

  8. I love St Ives, one day I'll go out of season to see it when it's not full of us holiday makers.

  9. Wonderful collage! Must use your work as inspiration for the children the next time we 'do' collage at school.

  10. Hello, I have just been showing my OH your work, he was very impressed. I think I might send him the link! ;0)

    and as for the crochet, utube helped me a lot, I would play it over and over again until I got how to do the stitch. Learning how to hold the crochet hook took me FOREVER. Good luck! :0)
