Unlike last December, we’ve not had much snow yet which suits me fine because I haven’t recovered from last winter, yet. While making this collage, I was thinking of Christmas cards we’d receive at home, in the mail from relatives in England and Poland, while I was growing up.
More seasonal inspiration from my GabbyGubbins collages
I’ve been meaning to post images of my work in the ARTS Project Crafted show, so I’ve made an online catalogue. If you would like to see, click on the link above.
Illustration Friday’s topic this week is “Sea.” I think no matter how old we are, we all still feel like this, sometimes.
A bit of the “season” is finding it’s way into my collages
Not fifteen minutes away from me, in Highgate Ontario, is a historically significant Methodist Church that’s now The Mary Webb Centre, a performing arts venue with a gallery downstairs, in the former Sunday school rooms.There are over area 40 artists represented in the gallery. My mixed wooden figures, collages, paper toys and original drawings are now there. I’m always amazed at how many talented artists live in my area.

These rabbits were my favourites, by Simone Vojvodin Simone has many of her original punch needle/rug hooking patterns in her Etsy Shop.
Some of the collages from my tumblr blog are becoming a little more 3 dimensional.
It’s the same process really, but the first step involves a scroll saw and the arms have pins through them so they can move.
Also, they have a front and a back
