Linda's Collages.

It all started in the 90s when I acquired a 'bag of things'. Odds and ends and beads and flim flam

and broken bits and old toys and so on and so on.

All I could think to do with it was stick it onto a board and make a picture. I had fun doing it and went on to make big mad brooches which sold in a craft shop in St Ives, (Cornwall)

where I was living at the time..

Later I created pieces for my own home and for friends.

I recently bought a huge quantity of this tat from eBay - 18kg - to make 3 more for the house

and three to sell. After washing and sorting everything 2 weeks had gone by!

Here are the finished collages.

DURING LOCKDOWN I BOUGHT MORE AND MADE ANOTHER SEVEN, BUT SMALLER.

One more can be found on the Paintings page as one of the four Sherlock portraits.
