girl obscured by love

So where did the holiday go ? Back to work already without much chance to do any collage, as I'd planned. Oh well, I did manage to squeeze in a few pieces. Here's one of them.

Collage cheer

I found this discrded gift tag in the street after last Christmas.  Stuck some bits on and here is my 2014 Holiday greeting collage.  Just ignore the fact that it is mid summer here and we will be having Christmas dinner in the middle of a game park.  Happy holidays to all !

Still working right up until Christmas day.  Maybe I can celebrate, not with Chirstmas dinner, but with collage time!

the ties that bind

Not strictly speaking a collage, but I just finished it so I thought I'd post it.

Things are looking up. The dreaded postal strike is still with us but a bit of mail has started filtering through. Other good news is that I am making headway with the deadlines so am looking forward to making some collages this wekkend. Yes!

just so busy with cartoons that all collage activity has ground to a halt. Even my glue sticks are drying out !

bird call

They say that one swallow does not make a summer... so here are some more birds.

swallow summer

The sweallows are back.  Summer means lying on the warm ground as the sun goes down to watch the sky darken and the swallows, mere specks in the sky, having their supper.

Read the title then please note the gratuitous use of Temporary tattoos. Sorry, I thought it was funny.

vital force

Another of those fabulous illustrations from the children's medical book I found. Fantastic colours.

Continuing in yesterday's vein of tonal images.  This is something I am eager to explore when I can get the collage stuff out again. Currently my workspace is full of cartoons and a pack of lunatic dogs wanting to go for a walk.

Tropical night

Summer is on the way and the days are getting noticeably longer. Makes me think of the hot, humid perfumed nights of mid-summer. Trouble is, once they arrive, so do the mosquitoes!

Lazy day

This card is one of a number that I sent out recently.  However, South Africa is in week ten of a Post Office worker's strike so who knows where my mail is.  My PO box has also been empty for a while so I'm looking forward to a treat when the strike ends.  Strikes in SA tend to be a bit different to those in other countries, as you can see below.
