Since I'd cancelled my craft-fair at the weekend (just as well as youngest kiddo was full of the cold) I had a little time on Thursday to play around with my tweedy-scrappy flowers. Eventually I had made enough to make a little mosaic image with them . . .
I sort of like seeing them as a whole like this - the top three flowers were made into pendants with some hessian string attached (the flowers all have felt backing so no itchy necks!) and the rest have brooch pins added - I think they may be something I'll continue to make, either for sale in their own right, or for using as embellishments on zipper pouches, etc.
We've had quite a relaxing weekend and seemed to be the only place in the country where the rain didn't make an appearance :)
Here's some more of 'Little S's' shots (I think he may have been clocking my own love of wild flower photography closer than I thought!) . . .
|I like how the clouds are a little blurry in the background here, and the blade of grass caught in the foreground . . .|
|Some lovely cuckoo flowers (Lady's Smocks) - my favourite!|
|Wild crocus - nice shot :)|
|A lovely view of the sea, just a few yards along from our house . . . .|
|and a cute shot of a fishing boat, in Broad Bay - just off the local pier.|
Perhaps this is something I could keep him amused with over the summer holidays - photographer in residence, hehe! Knowing him, he'll probably try and charge me an extortionate fee for his services - typical 10 year old!!!
Not sure what's planned for this week, I'm going with the creative flow I think - the boys will be on school holidays in two weeks and my creative/productive timetable will probably go right out the window - better make the most of the time I have left!
Back later in the week I hope - have a good one :)
