What have you done for me lately....

I have got my place at college sorted out so university here I come next week!!

I have been fortunate enough to find a huge pile of practical photography magazines in our local Oxfam bookshop which have the most amazing photographs to use for altered or collage art.

I have yet to make a full collage piece but I am working on a couple using some of these images aswell as images drawn on to graph or tracing paper so the original image can be seen through.

The other pastime I have been enjoying is the juxtapose photographs. I'm trying to combine the two so I'm only using my own photos and often my own collages as well.

I have also, in the style of the new school pencil case, been getting ready for college with the designing and making of a new apron....... Well I don't want to get covered in charcoal or paint........

I have used my machine embroidery pictures to adorn the apron which I think is very effective. I'm thinking of making some for my etsy shop.

So.......pencil case packed and satchel at the ready......... University here I come ( or another round of collages if I have time.....)
