Winter cast offs

The finished canvas complete with; 
 wire, washers, bread bag clips, string, plastic, knitting needles, old book paper scraps, lace, earings, watch parts and other assorted metal bits.

Such fun pulling it all together.

I tried adding some sprays of colour but, it just didn't feel right.  Painted over the colour with gesso which has left tiny drops still showing.

I have loved using all the bits and pieces that usually get chucked in the bin.

I will definitely do this again.  Perhaps a spring theme.


  1. Lovely Sandra, really lovely. And no doubt you're enjoying it even more for being made up of the 'bits' rahter than rushing out and buying new stuff. Great work gal!

  2. Too funny - just saw that I had comments in my spam (I don't get many) and one was from you from waaaay back asking about DD. If I said bird stamps and birds on a bag would that make sense?

  3. Hi Sandra, That looks fabulous! I shall eagerly await to see it IRL!

  4. Gorgeous ... if I did that it would look like bits and pieces rather than the work of art you created.

  5. I'm amazed that you created this beauty from all those bits and bobs. I've had a close up nosey and it is just gorgeous. It has a really classy Christmassy feel, love the white with just a hint of colour. You must be so pleased with the end result.
