Banishing the Blues

Materials: inks, card, wool and silk fibres, yarns

Technique:  calligraphy, collage

Size: 30 x 30 x 5 cm

Description:  Sometimes we need a bit of help to overcome the blues. This collage contains inspirational messages which will increase motivation and encourage us to rise above the blue patches of life. The mixture of fibres (wool, mohair, silk, acrylic, paper) and the different shades of blue reflect the way we individually respond to (and hopefully overcome) the crises of life.
