Bootcamp-February-wood challenge

This months Bootcamp assignment was to paint on wood any scene you were inspired by!
I initial roughs were to be taken from scenic plate designs! I was inspired by a little plate that I picked up in a car boot sale. Sadly not good chucks of wood in London, well not in the time scale that we had,so I sourced a piece of ply from a craft store instead. This was a great project as it was really open and everyone has create something completely different. You can see this months gallery here  and I'm on page 2!

Scrap Exchange!

Before Christmas I signed up with The collage Scrap exchange! We were given a scrap partner and away we went, I was teamed up with a lovely lady in Detroit! My envelope of goodies arrived soon after Christmas and then the creating could begin. I tried to use solely her scraps, but ended up finding the birds from elsewhere.
It is run as a competition and the deadline has been extended to 15th March I think, as many scraps got stuck in the Christmas post! So I'm looking forward to seeing the winning entry then. In the meantime it was lots of fun and i still have plenty of scraps so i could make another one!

 The above is what I sent!
 This is what I received!

Final Piece!

At the weekend I reached a little milestone on Instagram and passed the1,000 followers mark, I try to post on there everyday, sometimes photo's , sometimes collage work whatever I have been up to really, I love the inspiration that Instagram offers and i am happy that it is not just for teenagers.
So here are a few of my more popular images.

Part of Bootcamp was to design a manifesto, I have to admit taking these on line courses has given me a new lease of creative life, so I wanted  to try and capture that in my image.

The Lilla Rogers Boot camp is up and running again, great to be pushed out of our comfort zones and tackle a new theme! This months topic was Edwardian Brooches, my final design I think is far removed from that subject matter, but I did get my inspiration from the brooches so hope it counts, here you can see my process in pictures!

After the storms last week, a branch was blown off a cherry tree up the street from where we live, so I rescued a piece in the hope that it would flower and this weekend my wish was granted!!
It looked so beautiful in the sun that I couldn't resist photographing it.
