Some collages i finished off today. The background was achieved by using some old paper gift bags i found in my stash of papers, i used gel medium to adhere fragments of the paper to the wood and painted over them.
The last lot of wooden brooches i made sold so well in the shop i decided to experiment with some new designs. I made these using some illustrations from pages of an old book.

I've had such a lovely day today. This morning Gav and i attended the vicarage for our wedding preparation course along with four other couples. It was quite interesting. Then Nicole and I went to Bishops Castle to get her bridesmaid dress and spent the afternoon looking around antique shops, book shops and drinking coffee...a gorgeous mother/daughter afternoon to be treasured.
