so, today i made some collages that i feel happy sharing. just lately i’ve been feeling a bit ..i don’t know how to explain it ..not uninspired, but more unsatisfied with the collages i’ve been making, which is why i’ve not been sharing them as i usually do. i think i’ve finally gotten over that now though, so i made a couple today, and here’s the two i like best:

my work by

i’ve been on a bit of a pattern making roll lately (mm, pattern roll) so here’s my latest one & here’s the one i made previously. i’ve got a couple more to show and put up, but i’m trying to show a bit of restraint. once again, i’ve done it in three colourways. the first two aren’t hugely dissimilar but i really liked the strength and contrast of the black and pink one. i think the second one has a bit of a 70’s feel, what with the mustard and orange. i’m not all that fond of most things 70’s but i think the colours and style sit together well here because it looks a bit autumnal.
