The theme for February over at the Studio Sublime has been cabin fever. This week is all about beating cabin fever and creating a collage of love.
I have had rather a long stretch of artistic inactivity, but the greyness of winter, the appalling weather conditions and the dark, cold evenings have encouraged me to nip off to my studio and make things! So I decided to photograph some of the little areas of my studio (the not so messy areas actually!).
I love my space, I love working here and I love the bits and bobs around me that I've collected over the years from flea markets and antique fairs.
When the lid got smashed my great-grandmother's sugar bowl became my new brush pot! I know the bottle is a bit wonky but it is very sweet and I can't bear to chuck it out!
I have a weakness for anything arranged in colour sequence - I think my OCD tendencies come to the fore when I'm sorting and storing ribbons! I also have a weakness for sari silk and I like to have jars of certain colours on hand to grab when needed!
