Collage Seagull

I created this seagull illustration yesterday using the collage papers from a couple of weeks ago. It was actually great to get away from the computer for a change with pleasing results too. I may explore this method further in the future...

I really like Mark Hearld's illustrations below. He creates layers on acetate then lays them on top of each other to get the finished piece. A bit like real-life Photoshop, which I can see would give you greater flexibility to make changes and try different things out.

May Day

What a lovely idea that I got from Little Green Shed. Create a simple jar of flowers picked from the hedgerow or your garden and hang anonymously on a friends door as a sign of Summer on its way. A pagan tradition apparently - I like it! Let's do this all the time as the seasons change.
