During my exploration of this wonderful city I've been gathering bits and pieces and letting my imagination flow....and seeing what develops.
I've started working on collages....it just seems right to be making these here in Paris. The city is really a huge collage of different arrondissements each with its own colour, personality and soul...all overlapping...to form one beautiful Parisian collage. The apartment too, is big enough for me to be able to spread out and make a glorious mess (and hopefully some interesting creations.)
So...here's some of my bits and pieces and creations (just little warm-ups though...I've been a bit busy having fun!!):
(1) Vintage cards and magazines from Les Archives De La Presse on rue des Archives
|Everything boxed up neatly...so you can easily find your treasure.|
|The Garden in Summer assemblage....Le Jardin dans l'Été|
|Cartes postale on the theme.|
Displaying the collages in vintage frames could look good I think....perhaps from l'Object qui Parle/the Object that Speaks.......I've had a quick snorkel in this quirky brocante but have to go back for a good rummage.
|What a joint...and l'Objet qui Parle is close to home on rue des Martyrs.|
|Lots of 'stuff' but perhaps I'll find the perfect vintage frames here!|
|Now what can I do with these antlers?|
I'll think of something.
|That's my beautiful chapeau in the front...teal and orange.|
|I may have to go back for this one I think.|
|Bird/Chapeau assemblage.... C'est possible...to fly like a bird.|
|These hidden passages are intriguing...and the perfect|
spot for a quiet lunch and people watch.
