Collage no. 22

Another day, another collage... And though the weather is not at all summery and bright (heavy grey clouds), today's collage has a definite Summer vibe :)

Left-hand page

Top left is a Cathy Cullis postcard - I just love her work! - and next to that an old postcard called 'The Siren's Sojourn'. Below is a gorgeous photo of a peony - I'm not a big fan of pink, but this page is full of it!

I love the 'g' postcard - an issue of Flow magazine had a whole alphabet of postcards to tear out and keep - G is for 'grow' and 'green' and 'gorgeous' and... I love that this random image of newspapers has a looking 'glass' with a 'green' handle :)

Right-hand page

Top left is a page from last year's quote-a-day calendar which reads:

If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.
Roald Dahl

And the most joyful postcard of a wee girl on a tree-swing - the perfect Summer pastime!
Then a lovely Angie Lewin image clipped from a birthday card - another favourite artist! And a groovy postcard of Biba-type girl pondering her next Summer festival ;)

I'm not sure which the X is for - other than the pop of colour (a kiss, maybe? X marks the spot...) and a lovely random quote on the palest blue background:

when you love what you have, you have everything you need.

Exactly! :D

    1. Thanks Alison, it is rather happy and girlie, isn't it?

  2. Hi Claire, you should be proud of yourself, you are keeping up with the collages, already day 22! Pink and Yellow (care and happiness) good choice for the first Monday of Summer. You said that it's cloudy there, but I can see the summer inside you through your pages. Have a lovely Summer!

    1. What a lovely thing to say, Elizabeth! Thank you :)
      Sending the summerest best wishes to you and yours across the ocean xx

  3. happy and playful and self aware all at once. I love the image of the woman sitting on the ground staring into us. Childlike and adult and serious and fun.


Your comments mean a lot. They show I'm not alone. Thank you!
