FOLLOW ME TO
MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

The Summer of Colour challenge-Green

For this weeks Summer of Colour challenge I felt like getting sticky so did a collage journal page with cuttings from magazines and some doodling.  Bliss...sticking and doodling two of my favourite things to do.


I like to put down pieces randomly and see where they lead me and then find something a little interesting for the focal point. Butterflies are always a nice addition to any artwork  and I love them whatever shape or size they are don't you.
Thanks for looking
hugs
Chris xx

I love your collage.I will do them until grossed out by sticky fingers and head on to different medium. Bits and pieces always lead me not me leading them! Vickie
