A collage I was working on the day before my son was born. It's wonky and odd but I like it. ~
I am pondering how to use these collages as sketches for larger paintings or digital collages... @dodgy.paper made the white hand pulled cotton rag paper. Gah I LOOVE their paper. So imperfectly beautiful. ~
Also I am going to do an Artist Residency in Motherhood also known as ARIM. It is a self imposed creative residency for Mum's making in sporadic and sleep deprived moments. Should be fun. (The art not the sleep deprivation. Urgh)

Today was a big day! This guy came along and we fell in love. His name is Rex! #rexaustinmoodie #elvaaddison @lampoon
An Ode to Motherhood ~ Digital Collage.
This image reminds me of my nan, my sister and me.... @jo_wells_caton
I have a list of things to finish before our little boy comes along (very soon) and before we move from this house. Dyeing paper with Elva for a book using plants (weeds) from our garden was one of them!
I love that you cannot predict or reproduce the outcomes. I had so much fun creating with her and it felt like a nice way to create a momento of our garden and time here. Now I need to stitch it together... or make a collage... or paint the pages with beeswax and frame them... 😆🤔 This was inspired by an online course by @petalplum
Cooked the book! #petalplummakers
We made an eco-dyed book for witches spells! #elvaaddison loved it!
Elva, the bump and some lovely creative projects from today.
Colour play ~ I've been going through my inspiration draws and culling and reorganising.
There is something so uplifting about going through draws of pretty messes, mark makings, drawings, postcards, letters from my Nan and collected papers, patterns and paraphernalia... and working out what still inspires me and what I can do without.
Detail of this little collage experiment. It is made up of digital prints on paper, beeswax glazes, glue, fabric, cold wax and oil paint!
Adding a glaze layer of cold wax and oil paint... gives the collage a painterly feel.
Another collage started and not yet finished... but gee I am loving the edges on this @dodgy.paper
More wonky collage with scraps of my digital collages and painted with beeswax. Not finished yet... I don't think.

My 'Shadow' cushions now available at Penny Farthing Design House! Pictured here with a beautiful work by @krissy_ell
The Moon and the Sea ~ Collage, encaustic, cold wax and oils on board.
Cold wax glazes change this from a straight up collage (see the previous image way back in my feed) to something much more textural and painterly. Really enjoying experimenting with #coldwaxmedium
