Hey folks – Happy Holidays to you all!
We’ve had a lot of dark, gloomy, rainful days here. Not a big grumble, weather happens, but the half-arsed grey wet daylight has severely hampered my ability to any good photos lately. This week, finally I got a few pics of my latest adventures and obsessions!
When time and people permit, I like to pretty much hibernate from around 21 December straight through to a couple of days into January. Not so much a big sleep, but a big re-charge. I spend most of these days actively pursuing colors and shapes in some fashion or another 😉
Recently I’ve found myself making a whole load of these. Srsly, like dozens of them. Ranging in size from about 1/2 inch upwards to 2 inches, they really satisfy the no scrap is too small to keep mentality!
To what end I can’t be certain, but I mounted a few up on some dyed paper and framed a few in little Ikea box frames.
Some of them have a very dimensional quality – consisting layers of paper and some with corrugated card – so they work well in a deep box frame. (pics to follow…)
Hang on… like a deja vu thing going on here… these things remind me of something…
Yes! these things
Curious… I’d totally forgotten about them til typing this post… But do feel encouraged, at least I’m consistent with my obsessions, even if I’ve no idea what they’re for (yet).
So, dear friends and visitors, whether you’re getting ready to party the new year in, or already have done, I wish you all the very best for 2013.
May it bring you what you wish for, and more 😀

Ditto on the weather, but all your lovely color explorations cheer things right up. What lovely little stacks. Happy New Year and fully recharged batteries to you too.
and to you huns, wish you a bright colorful 2013 😀
I love your work, especially the colors and imagination. You could put them together on a backing and make a “painting” out of them…or something else…maybe furniture…maybe…
Ooh, furniture … That’s given me ideas I didn’t have b4! Tx for the lovely comment 🙂 x
love that you allow yourself to play in your art – these are beautiful and captivating. and i agree with everyone regarding your sense of color – delicious!

my favorite way: “don’t know why, just have to make ’em.”
lol yeh – the only way! I’d not get much done if I spent time figuring out reasons!!! 😉
These are really neat! They remind me of rainbow confetti, or square petals of spring flowers. Pretty grey here too, so I am loving all the color in your post! Thank you for the New Year’s Cheer! A wonderful 2013 to you as well!
Big thanks Rachel !! Keep warm by the glow of the colours ! 🙂 x
