I sometimes think I should try and use brighter colours in my work, but the muted colours I love so much are the perfect backdrops to layer up with delicate lace. It creates a nostalgic feel, which is what my work is all about.
I bought these lovely postcards for 10p each from a bric a brac shop called 'Bygones' What a great name for a shop.
I also found a few other little things, a small biscuit tin with budgie's on , I think it's 1950's and an old map of Europe, which I might cut up and use for collage. It's funny what you end up buying sometime...have you bought anything random recently?
