Vintage Blue & Rust

vintage-blue-rust-nb

A collection of vintage blue and rusty coloured treasures from around my work room. Vintage dyed fabrics, a piece of dyed string, a vintage blue pressed hydrangea flower, a rusty coloured dried pressed rose, a rusty ring pull from a can – all on a vintage blue textured background. I painted the background paper with acrylic paints.

All these lovely things I collect inspire me and I will eventually use them in art work when the right project comes along. And I will then replace them with other lovely things… !

Original Vintage Designs

Vintage Spot Mosaic

These are my own original designs which I have created in Photoshop using a little imagination and some of my own textures. My designs are available in my shop in a variety of products, prints and cards. There will be more original designs coming – but at the moment they’re still in my head… I’m hoping to do some work on them later!

Messages From The Past

Messages From The Past

Vintage Cotton Reel - DIB

Both images are vintage treasures! The 1st image is of some antique post cards about 100 years old. They’re topped with lavender and tied with string! They are messages from the past… a glimpse into the lives of people who lived in a very different world.

The second image is a vintage cotton reel (spool) from my mother’s sewing box. It’s well over 50 years old – they don’t make them like this any more!
