When you were young, did you collect flowers or shells or bits of polished glass from your walks to be used in some crafty piece when home (or carefully placed on a shelf for ‘later use’)?
Nowadays I rarely colelct things for crafty use or display. But I do collect photos that I intend to use for creative play, rather than to record a memory.
One my walk last week I was on the lookout for a good dark shape that I could then play with using textures and pixel magic – I found these rocks
I liked the shape of those rocks and knew the contrast with the sand would provide a good canvas for textures and after some satisfying playing on PSE, I had a selection of colour ways which I put together.
I like how it looks like a partial handprint in some of them.
What crafty inspiration do you collect on your walks?
