I have returned home from Wales thick with cold, so I am having a very cosy time in front of the fire today.
Last night I was feeling too tired to do anything that needed thought or planning, and having read Daisy Yellow’s post ‘Cut and Paste Therapy’, I decided that was just the thing. There is nothing more relaxing than thumbing through a pile of old magazine’s tearing out stuff that catches your eye.
I made a pile of ‘whites’ and so a collage grew. It is about A2 in size and on card gathered from the local Scrapstore, which had already been used for a project I did with a youth group ( I LOVE to recycle!)
Already, even through the tiredness and my cotton wool brain, ideas were beginning to form.
This morning I finished tearing and gluing and then cut the card into post card sizes. . . .
. . . and made a few more cards for the Spring Post Card Swap.
I have added some of my crocheted daisies – daisies being a mini-obsession of mine at the moment …
. . . some machine stitching and couldn’t resist trying out some doodling with a white gel pen.
The weather here must have been affecting me more than I thought as these definitely have a wintry feel – Spring 2013!
