Full bloom

There’s not much blooming around here these days except for my hard-to-get-rid-of-throat-bug-thingie. I’ve been feeling under the weather since I got sick even though I finished my antibiotics a week ago - which is tiresome any day and even more tiresome when you need all your energy elsewhere. After spending 4 hours waiting at the ER yesterday, I’ve got a new type of antibiotics which hopefully will get rid of that stupid thing already so I can get back to life as I know it.

Anywho, besides spending a fun filled Wednesday evening with my quilting friends, grandson and I did a little mixed media collage/paintjob last weekend.

Plain coloured paper, lollipop sticks and leftover circles from the gift tag extravaganza.

We ran out of glue stick and our craft glue was old and thick so we had to use a paintbrush to get it out of the bottle leaving shiny glue everywhere. Lots of tearing, gluing and happy use of scissors later we had two pieces of collage.

The next day we dipped into our little stash of acrylic paint and this is how we left our collages.

My mind has been playing with how to transfer this into a mixed media quilt including the shadowing and all. Hm, we’ll see.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Glad you still feel like creating, sorry the throat thingy is hanging this and it would make a very wonderful quilt....looking forward to the transformation. xox

  4. Great mixed media collages. I hope you will get better soon, but get a new toothbrush. The old one is full of bacilli.
