It hasn't been a terribly creative time lately, but I have managed two collages. As always, I came up with a line of text inspired by each photograph and added it to the collage.
"She sang the faeries to her, with a voice of nectar and thistles."
When I came across this antique photo in London's Spitalfields Antiques market, I knew I had to use it in a collage. It's the first I've used with an animal in it, and only the second with a man rather than a woman or girl.
In both collages, I collected the flint pebbles from Brighton beach last month. Also the mermaid's purse. The shell is from a beach on a Danish island. And the piece of sea pottery from the lovely etsy shop: North Sea Treasures.
"They combed the shore together, looking for the water sprites they knew lived amongst the shells, pebbles of flint, and mermaids' purses."
