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… !

A soft dreamy sepia tone with a subtle texture:
I like them all – I love the simple classic lines and tones of the black and white, I love the delicate tones of the middle one and I love the soft warm sepia tones of the last.
