Creative Space - secrets . . .

Have two weeks gone since I last blogged??? I'm afraid they have, but I've been busy - honest!!! In between bouts of Spring Cleaning I've been working on my 'key' cards which I've found really satisfying, just playing around with textures, shapes, composition - a lovely change from working on my standard pieces. I've made 4 0f these cards and will hopefully complete a set of 10 (as I have 10 keys!!!).

I toyed with what to 'title' each one but settled on writing 'the key' on each one and numbering them individually - I've signed them too, just like a 'real' artist, haha! Keys have so much symbolism, meaning, etc. I think it's nice to leave it up to the individual as to whatever sentiment, message, the cards evoke . . . having said that I guess they would be appropriate as 18th, 21st Birthday cards, 'new home' cards, etc. At the moment I'm just enjoying making them and haven't planned where, how, or if I'll end up selling them at all! Very self indulgent, I know :)

More creative peeps over here at Kirsty's place.

I bet they'd look cool grouped together in a collage on your wall!

I love the mix of textures and subtle colours in these cards. I think they would make great framed pictures.

Thankyou both! I think they would look quite nice framed - if I ever get round to it! :)

They're really pretty. I love the idea. You've got some very nice lace there!

These are great - love the combination of the lace against the keys :)

Beautiful composition and great materials! What a great idea for old (otherwise decomissioned) keys. Spring cleaning always turns up new materials to up-cycle.
