As I was browsing Helen Musselwhite’s delightful gallery tonight I started to realise I recognised a few of her folky forest images even though it was my fist visit to her site. That’s because they've popped up on a few other blogs before. She’s got hundreds of images, though, and I don’t think I’d seen any of these ones here. Even if any of you have already seen them they’re so charming I’m sure you won’t mind a second viewing.
That said, when it comes to sitting cutting up bits of paper for hours on end I’m as happy as a pig in the proverbial. And so I briefly delved into the whole paper collage thing a few months ago. Unsurprisingly, my stuff ending up looking like what a four-year-old takes home to their mammy. Seriously, ‘shabby’ doesn’t quite cover it. However, I’ve about three unfinished ‘things’ lying around that I’m now toying with trying to salvage. Practice makes perfect, as they say, though I’d happily settle for anything almost half decent.
