experimenting...


I've been experimenting with scissors, PVA, and little wooden boards!...  Do you think I watched too much Blue Peter as a child?..... I never got a badge :( no matter how many competitions I enetered, Ahhhhh,  I'll be talking sticky back plastic next..  ooooo do you remember that!!?...... "come back Shep".... quickly slap me

So
Inspired by Japanese Kokeshi dolls and my screen print Kokeshi girl...



...here's a few I prepared earlier!

I've had a little trouble photographing the boards, 
I think it's the dull natural light and ye oldie worldie camera ( nothing to do with the lack of brain cells and incompetence of the photographer at all at all at all!)

What do you think?

  2. These remind me of some of the Scandinavian images I have seen and are slightly reminiscent of my childhood (that will be the 1970's so I remember Shep and though John Noaks was a demi-god).

    I think their simplicity combined with the detailing of wood grain make a contemporary piece. I especially like the wheel-eyed birds.

  3. These are really quite lovely and I don't think your photography is as bad as all that. Now mine on the other hand sucks and I can't even blame the camera.

  4. Lovely colours Lisa, I think they are so well thought out and have a calm tranquil feel about them.
